Peter : apostle for the whole church by Pheme Perkins( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perkins describes the search for the historical Peter, and the influence his image has had, in Roman Catholic and Protestant ecumenical discussions. Pointing to portrayals of Peter in the Pauline and Johannine traditions, the synoptic Gospels, and the Book of Acts, Perkins argues that precisely because there is no single Petrine tradition in the New Testament, the apostle might serve as a unifying figure for incongruous forms of Christianity. Perkins argues that Peter should be viewed as a harmonizing figure who captures the Christian imagination not only because he is the most prominent of Jesus' disciples, but also because his weaknesses and strengths present a character accessible to the average Christian

Professor Perkins compares Jesus with other types of teachers of his day: philosophers, interpreters of the law, prophets, and visionaries. Jesus is characterized as a charismatic teacher and prophet who addressed his message to all people, as opposed to the elite groups taught in formal schools in ancient times. Readers are shown how Jesus used parables, proverbs, legal and prophetic sayings to challenge the imagination and to allow his listeners to discover his message. The book contains detailed analyses of many gospel passages and covers themes of particular prominence in Jesus' teaching, including justice, wealth, forgiveness, and love

Hearing the parables of Jesus by Pheme Perkins( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studies of the parables have increased and flourished in the past ten years. Researchers from various disciplines in the humanities have joined Scripture scholars and theologians in examining these unique stories of Jesus. Much energy has been spent in exploring and defending particular points of view about the parables. Yet all too often the central questions about a particular parable--"What is the parable saying? How do I respond to this story?"--Have been ignored in the process. [This book] is a guide to help readers respond to these questions. Each chapter of [this book] introduces issues in the current discussion of the parables and teachings of Jesus. It then goes on to readings of specific parables which present various directions in which an interpretation might lead. Also included in each chapter are study questions. The format and content of [this book] make it suitable for use by an individual, in the classroom, or as part of an adult education program."--Back cover

First Corinthians by Pheme Perkins( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this addition to the well-received Paideia series, a respected New Testament scholar examines cultural context and theological meaning in First Corinthians. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by: attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs; showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits; commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book; focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text; making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight Pheme Perkins offers in interpreting First Corinthians. - Publisher
