Like the rabbis of his time, Jesus used simple word pictures, called parables, to help people understand who God is and what his kingdom or reign is like. Jesus used images and characters taken from everyday life to create a miniature play or drama to illustrate his message. Over a third of the Gospels by Matthew, Mark, and Luke contain parables told by Jesus. In this new book, the parables of Jesus are studied according to their emphasis, such as parables on discipleship, judgment, the nature of the kingdom of God, and the love of God. Eleven chapters of material excellent for use in preaching, teaching, and personal study.
