Sit at Jesus' Feet and Learn from His Stories Jesus, the master teacher, frequently used story and narrative to break down the walls of communication and open up the hearts of his listeners. Often the parables were used to reveal truth to his disciples, while keeping it hidden from those who opposed him. Join New Testament scholar Kenneth Scheck as he reflects deeply on the ways Jesus revealed truths about his mission and the kingdom of God through parables, particularly as they are recorded in the gospel of Matthew. Based on the solid scholarship found in Schenck's two books, JesusThe Mission and JesusPortraits from the Gospels, The Parables of Jesus provides thirty days of in-depth devotions on teachings such as the parable of the sower, the mustard seed, the yeast and the dough, the pearl of great price, the net, and the weeds. Each devotion will challenge you to engage, examine, and explore one of Jesus' parables and then take it to God in prayer. FREE Sermon Notes and Small Group Guide downloads available.
Kenneth Schenck is academic dean and professor of New Testament and Christian ministry at Wesley Seminary in Marion, Indiana.
