Kinman wants to reconsider the exegesis of Luke 12:57-59. He provides reasons to question the consensus interpretation. His reasons are based on three factors that he considers: the literary setting of the passage in its context, the phenomenon of debt in Hellenistic law, and the language of the passage itself. He argues that the warning of the parable is addressed to Israel, the judgment mentioned is temporary, and the reference of the parable is to the coming judgment of God and subsequent restoration of Israel.
