imagine: pondering the parables
Jesus loved to teach using parables. A parable is defined as a short allegorical story designed to illustrate or teach some truth. In Jesus’ case, it’s the truth of the kingdom of God which he conveys by inviting his listeners to imagine a world that’s different than the one in which they now live – a world where things are as God desires them to be.
Over the next 2 months our teaching series Imagine – Pondering the Parables will focus on some of these stories to discover the truth Jesus is presenting, and inspire us to see the kingdom of God become reality in our lives and in our world.
