In the last podcast episode I continued the series on studying the Bible in light of its various types of literature – its literary genres. I looked at an example related to the New Testament – how the literary features of Greco-Roman phantom tales and “post-mortem appearances” of the dead inform our reading of NT resurrection accounts. In this episode, I focus on a type of literature that appears in both testaments, but which is most familiar in the New Testament:  the parable.
