John MacDougall draws out the Old Testament parables, calling attention to them as either “parables of fact,” “parables of fable,” or “parables of fancy.” In this, he looks for possibilities in evangelical application and Gospel interpretation. His exegesis pulls from the Septuagint, the Massoretic Hebrew Text, and numerous English translations, giving readers truer access to the original text and fuller interpretations of the parables of the Old Testament.
