The Parables of Jesus
April - May Series
Through His life, death, and His resurrection, Jesus opened up an entirely new way to relate to God. Our relationship with Him is now determined by what Christ has finished for us, not what we must do for Him.
Jesus was the Master Storyteller.
“Parable” literally means to “throw alongside of”. Through His parables, Jesus is throwing down spiritual truth alongside a physical or real life example that we can grasp and apply to our daily lives. Through His stories we see what life in the Kingdom looks like, with Christ Himself, as our King. The parables of Jesus make sense in light of the cross and His resurrection. We have been brought from death into life. Through the parables, Jesus extends an invitation to all people to be a part of this new life that He offers - a life, on purpose.
