PARABLES: Communicating God on earth
We can learn much, not only from what Jesus said, but from how He communicated with different groups of people. If we’re to be His mouth and arms, His ambassadors, then we need to learn how, as well as what, to communicate to different people – how to paint heaven on this earth.
What relevance do 2000-year-old stories of vines and shepherds, of by-gone meal etiquette and the power of petty Middle-Eastern overlords have to your life today? In this study you will see that stories can change our thinking, our ways of seeing, our behaviour, even our society, by provoking us to ask questions and to ‘think outside the box’. Jesus’ stories and pithy sayings, together with the stories about His life which interweave with them, do all these things and more.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
