What’s the Point?
Some have said that hearing a parable is like hearing a joke — if you have to explain the point, you missed it.
Jesus communicated some of his deepest truths in the form of a story. It was usually a familiar story — a good Samaritan helping an injured man, another man inviting guests to a great feast, a farmer spreading seed, or two builders finding the right foundation for a house. The settings were normal, but the stories confronted the listeners and communicated a profound spiritual truth.
Join us as we visit five of the most well-known parables to hear how the stories Jesus told have a point that challenges us today.
