What is a Parable?

This week, we dive into our next series exploring the parables of Jesus. We couldn’t start our series on the parables without exploring what a parable means, so this first episode addresses what is a parable, why Jesus used them to teach and how we can understand the deeper truths Jesus is trying to communicate.

We’ll be exploring various parables throughout this series. We are excited to share our perspective on the parables and what they mean to us today.

Here are the categories of the parables we mention in the video:

Kingdom Parables
Sinner Parables
Forgiveness Parables
Prayer Parables
Stewardship Parables
Service Parables
Preparedness Parables

Thanks for joining us for this week’s episode of Thursday’s Theology. Join us next week as we explore the Parable of the Wineskin.

What is a Parable?

And remember, theology doesn’t always have to be complicated, it is simply the study of who God is.

Thursday’s Theology – Part IV

What’s up theology nerds!
 
Good Thursday to you all. A new Thursday means a new episode of Thursday’s Theology is up and running!
 
This week we are focusing specifically on Luke 18 and Jesus’ parable of the Tax Collector and the Pharisee. We are going to be discussing how Jesus uses two extreme examples, one righteous and one unrighteous, to prove a point about the hypocrisy of prayer.
 
In essence, prayer is meant to be a personal conversation with you and God, not done in public for your own self gratifications.
