July 2012

At the beginning of July we complete our series on the Bible’s teaching on “rest” including looking at examples of Jesus’ purpose and priorities.

Then we will explore Jesus’ teaching using parables only recorded in Luke’s gospel. Many of ‘Doctor’ Luke's unique parables highlight his concerns – caring deeply for the weak, the sick, and the downtrodden.

Parables are a significant characteristic of Christ’s teaching. People could easily remember and share them with others. The parables were also rich, spiritual metaphors. The deeper meanings would unfold as a disciple progressed in the Christian walk. Pray that God will teach us truths for today as we reflect on them over the coming weeks.
