Parables: Life Stories From Jesus

We've been shaped by stories our entire lives. We hear them from our friends. We see them in our favorite movies and TV shows, and we listen to them on podcasts. We relate to stories. We can visualize them, and it's easy to share them with our friends. Jesus, the master teacher, understood this and chose to teach using stories called parables. Yes, we've been shaped by stories our entire lives, but the stories Jesus taught are meant to give us life.

The Prodigal Son

This week we begin our new series, “Parables, Life Stories from Jesus. Jesus, the master teacher, understood used stories, called parables, to teach us how to live and to give us life.

The first of Jesus’ stories we will consider is the parable entitled, “The Prodigal Son.” This story is about lostness, about awayness. But, it is also the story of a loving father.

Join us for this message as we consider what it teaches us about the heart of God and His love toward those far from Him.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Jesus was a master storyteller. He could spin a tale that would capture the attention of any audience. But his stories were more than entertainment. Jesus’ stories had meaning and significance. His stories were memorable, but more than that, they were stories that profoundly communicated the heart of God.

Our parable for this week is no exception. This dramatic tale, “The Good Samaritan,” is well known. So much so that it has become part of our culture. We often call people who demonstrate great sacrifice or exceptional kindness “good samaritans.” To call someone, a good Samaritan is quite a compliment.

For most people, this is a story about helping someone in need, but it is much more than that.

Join us as we explore the parable of the Good Samaritan.
