Parables of Jesus
Today we will study the parable of the ten minas, a parable told because the Jews believed the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. We will discuss how Jesus is a King in waiting.
We tend to over-estimate our own goodness. That is, we think deep down that we’re really ok people. Self-righteousness is blatantly anti-Jesus. When we overestimate our righteousness, we place ourselves on a god-like pedestal and devalue the nature and death of Jesus.
Today we will discuss the parable of the unforgiving servant and how a refusal to forgive is evidence that you don’t really understand your own sin against God and what it means to have that sin forgiven.
Today we discuss the parable of the soils from Matthew 13. We will look into the 4 different heart conditions that Jesus describes.
Today as we look into the story of the prodigal son, we look into the older son’s response. Particularly we will be looking at religious legalism vs the Gospel.
Jesus was a friend of sinners. He received people where they were, so he could take them where they needed to be.
