Céline Rohmer, «Aux frontières du discours en paraboles (Mt 13,1-53)», Vol. 92 (2011) 597-610
The parable discourse (Matt 13,1-53) belongs to a narrative structure that connects it to its two short bordering episodes. The first stages Jesus’ physical family (12,46-50) and the second stages his fatherland (13,54-58). This article purposes to show how this setting guides the discourse’s reading and how it highlights its effects on the hearers. The theme of the link passes through the three apparently independent stories. It also sets a high value on the new relationship with God. This relation is designated by Jesus and narrated from 12,46 to 13,58.
