The Parables of Jesus

We all love a good story. Whether in a book, on a screen, or around a campfire, stories have a way of drawing us in and engaging our hearts and minds. Jesus knew this, and when he wanted to teach his closest followers, he told them parables. These simple stories may sound strange or confusing to our ears, but each hides a deeper meaning that’s meant to challenge and teach us. This summer, we’ll look at some of Jesus’s parables and explore the lessons they have for us today.
