This week we introduced our winter series Parables: Stories of Christ. Parables are the sermon illustrations Jesus used to help fishermen and farmers understand the theology of the Kingdom. By putting the known next to the unknown, Jesus’ parables fulfilled prophecy, separated followers from fans, and revealed truth in powerful ways. As we study the parables in their cultural and historical context, the stories come alive and are more easily understood and applied. Join us for the next 7 weeks as we dive into the parables of Jesus!
