@danielkeyes137 Not a particular philosopher, but Jesus' use of parables to provoke thoughtful reflection upon ethical behavior is a typical Jewish philosophical and teaching protocol.
The Socratic Method is much older than Socrates.
"Teach the[ Commandments] to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
Deuteronomy 11:19 NIV
@andy12 I've read several scholars comparing Jesus to Sokrates, but I haven't learned much about 2nd Temple era rabbinic practices, so I'm intrigued to hear that this may have been a part of their wider tradition as well!
It reminds me that lore about the Phrygian slave Aesop was popular in Alexandreia and the Hellenistic south close to Jesus' time, and he was another eclectic figure who told stories and confused people with his wit (although more as a trickster figure than a wisdom teacher).
This is an instance for folks who follow The Liturgists Podcast, The Alien & The Robot, and other things The Liturgists create.
