parables of jesus When Jesus wanted to get a point across, He told a story. Through these stories that we call parables, Jesus helps us understand complex spiritual truths in a way that makes sense to us. From late June to early August, we’ll be exploring these parables in worship each Sunday. As we do, we’ll look for how Christ’s nature is revealed through each parable and what this story means for us today.
