Biblical Teaching 10: The Gospel of Luke: Parables Jesus Told


Much of Jesus’ teaching was accomplished through the telling of parables—a very common teaching method in His day. All four Gospels share some of those parables with us. These two Units totalling 14 sessions focus on Luke’s accounting of parables taught by Jesus—and specifically on those that appear only in the Gospel of Luke. Other parables found in Matthew, Mark, and John are included in sessions from our studies in those Gospels. Parables are more than a story with a “moral” to it. They are quite distinct from that literary concept. And, ultimately, they are designed to provoke serious thought and call for decisions in important areas of life.
