Stories Well Told: Listening to the Parables of Jesus


Thursday, August 11, 2022
6:30 pm-8:30 pm


This course will meet online for evenings, Aug 11 and 12.

Even those who do not regularly read the Gospels remember the stories Jesus told—the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, the Pearl of Great Price. Those stories—a few of Jesus’ notable parables—are memorable. But, are they well understood? Have we listened and learned well what Jesus was teaching?

Jesus did not teach in parables to hide the truth from His listeners; He was sharing wonderful insight into Kingdom life. But because of the way His parables are popularly shared, we may need to learn to “re-hear” them so that we don’t simply take away from the parables only what we want.

This two-evening Bible intensive is part reading Scripture lab, part Gospel exploration, and part coming to see the wonders of the Kindgom in a fresh way. Two nights, rich Kingdom understanding, fresh insights into Jesus’ parables. The class will meet online over two evenings, Thursday, August 11, and Friday, August 12, beginning at 6:30 pm (EST).
