The story of Israel’s patriarch and namesake, Jacob, is indeed the story of the nation itself—a story of exile and return, of hope and redemption. When Jesus told the parable of the prodigal son, was he retelling and retooling the Jacob story in order to reveal something about His own identity and the nature of His Father’s Kingdom? That is the premise of this fascinating, insight-filled book by New Testament scholar Kenneth Bailey, whose lifetime of immersion in Middle Eastern culture imparts new layers and dimensions of understanding as to how Jesus’ words would have resonated with the people of His day—with implications for how we are to understand our King and Savior today.
