This past Sunday we started into some of the teachings of Jesus: the Parables. A parable is “a story with a point” as one student put it. And he was right! Jesus told some compelling stories to his listeners that challenged the current thinking of the day in light of the kingdom of God (Jesus) breaking in to human history (Jesus). And as far-reaching as it sounds, these ancient parables or stories, actually have something to say to us today in light of our current thinking and the kingdom of God (Jesus) breaking in to human history (Jesus).
