August 2012

In August and September we will continue to 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.
