Book Cover - The Family Metaphor in Jesus Teaching

This revised edition of the Family Metaphor in Jesus’ Teaching examines the family metaphors for God (Father) and for believers (“children,” “brothers”) that Jesus chose to use. Jesus not only held up a child as an example of receptivity, but he defended actual children, warning against despising “one of these little ones/” Using current discussions of the “equal-regard family” and of the importance of “human fathering,” Stephen Finlan explores how the gospel entails a changed model of parenting and of marriage and a new approach to spiritual growth.
