The Pesky Parables
Jesus taught in a unique story form called parables. It was through this form of telling stories that Jesus could communicate significant themes about God, grace, judgment, and the Kingdom. The stories were able to share these truths through metaphors and illustrations. The unique part of parables are the various ways we can interpret what Jesus was seeking to communicate through those parables. Jesus told these seemingly simple stories, yet they were meant to disturb, inspire, and speak of God’s hope for the world.
