+ Secrets of the Kingdom: The Parables of Jesus Unlocked
Saturday July 25, 9 am to 12 pm
To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God …  Mark 4:11
The parables of Jesus represent about one third of the recorded teachings of Christ in the four canonical Gospels. An essential grasp of the parables is paramount if we are to understand the person behind them and his teaching. On the surface, Jesus’s parables can seem deceptively simple, a creative and enjoyable way of teaching certain moral and religious truths. Rather than being a collection of fluffy moral illustrations, however, the parables of Jesus communicate profound and often shocking social and spiritual realities. What is more, some of Jesus’s parables are not easily penetrated, and much of their subtlety is lost on the modern person who is unfamiliar with their cultural and religious context. Join us as we unlock the parables of Jesus and bring out their genius, helping us to gain a deeper appreciation of their meanings and significances for us today. Gain a deeper appreciation for Jesus as a spiritual and religious teacher, a shrewd and daring communicator, and a master storyteller, and see in a whole new light some of the most familiar and time-honored stories in Western civilization.
