Parables in conte:d: some comments on Matthew 24:45-25:30 The  three parables  in Matthew  24:45-25:30 are usually  read as advice  to the  church  on  how  to  behave while waiting for the  return  of  the Lord.  An alternative  reading  is  proposed  in  this  article:  Matthew  discusses  the relationship  between  various  Jewish  groups,  explaining  who the  disciples of  the  Kingdom  are  and  why  fonnative  Judaism,  competing  for  the allegiance  of  Jews  of  the  late first  century,  is  not a  viable  option for  the future of  Israel's  inheritance.
