Kenneth E. Bailey is an author and lecturer in Middle Eastern New Testament studies. Find him on and consider purchasing some of his books (Poet & Peasant and Through Peasant Eyes, Paul Through Mediterranean Eyes, Jacob and the Prodigal, etc.) to discover his insights into parables and more. Here in this video Kenneth reviews Luke 18:35-19:10. He discusses what he says Luke would call The Oppressor & The Oppressed. The blind beggar and Zacchaeus are key figures Jesus encounters on his way to Jerusalem. Jesus’ mission continues to be defined through his interaction with these key figures and the Jericho crowds.
