Excerpt


Why did Jesus use parables, and how do we unravel them to discover their timeless and powerful messages? Jesus' parables proclaim the good news, they show us the Kingdom of God, they show us God's unconditional love for us all, and they convey a central truth. Parables even surprise us! They slip up on us and flip our values. They turn our world upside down. And the great thing about the parables of Jesus is that they are always relevant and always personal; they speak eloquently to you and me, here and now.

In this book, we will examine six of Jesus' thought-provoking parables, parables of grace, to see if we can find yourself and God's truth for us in these magnificent "truth stories." They are, after all, truth-stories from the mind of Jesus that can change our lives as they proclaim Gods truth for you and me. (This description was adapted from the Introduction)

A study guide is included for each chapter to help make this experience beneficial for both you and a small group. Leader and participant suggestions are provided along with reflection/discussion questions, group activities, and prayer. There are six sessions.

Excerpt


The Study Book contains an introduction and 12 in-depth chapters on the parables. The 12 chapters correspond to the basic lessons in the Modern Parables study.

Each of the six parables is covered in two chapters: one on "Understanding the Parable" and one on "Living the Parable." The "Understanding" chapters include background and context, section-by-section exegesis, and the relationship of the parable to the Kingdom of God. The "Living" chapters include a transcript of the pastor's talk in the corresponding Application Video as well as specific Biblical texts from other parts of the Bible that relate to the parable. The first "Living" chapter also includes a discussion of the four questions concerning Biblical application.

Almost all of the in-depth biblical study materials for Modern Parables is included in the Study Book. The reasoning behind this is that once students have had their interests piqued by the parable films and application videos, they will have a stronger interest in studying the parable. The lessons in the Study Book are intended to be read after each of the classes.
