What are parables?

Sun, Jun 04, 2017
Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. Matthew 13:10-11(ESV) Some stories stick with you. Do you know the story of the Tortoise and the Hare? Or have you heard the one about the Little Red Hen? These childhood stories are cute but they are meant to teach greater lessons like persistence and hard work. Through the plot and characters of narratives like these, we come to learn valuable lessons. Jesus was a master at hiding truth in plain sight. He told stories to the masses. Some are easily and quickly grasped. Some have wholesome characters while others include unrighteous villains. But all of them contain spiritual truths about salvation, the kingdom, and on following Him. This summer we will explore these stories - the Parables. Join us as we seek to discover truths hidden in plain sight this Sunday at 10:30!
