We love stories. That’s why we go to movies, read books, and listen to friends recount an experience. That’s also why teachers use the technique of storytelling to make a difficult concept easier for us to process. Jesus told stories, or parables, for that very reason—and to help us understand how God wants us to live life. Sometimes, however, stories like the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son can be interpreted in more that one way. Even Bible scholars are divided on their meanings. In Stories Jesus Told, you’ll explore six of Jesus’ parables to learn how to read, interpret, and live them in your daily life.
The six-session DVD features Dr. Greg Carey (Professor of New Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary) guiding participants through the study. The video sessions are approximately 10–12 minutes in length and all video sessions are closed captioned.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this series will be offered via Zoom each Sunday morning at 10:15 a.m. Contact Pastor Myers if you would like to participate and he will send you the link information.
