Product Description

One third of Jesus' recorded words in the New Testament are parables. If these stories were so important to him, they should also be important to us. Jesus was a communications genius, his parables convey important spiritaul truths - appealing to young and old, rich and poor, educated and non-educated - because they are not just a story to be understood, they are a spiritual tempertature gauge.

Deceptively simple, often taken from everyday Palestinian life; the parables are not just aimed to inform, don't even stop at transforming peoples' lives, but go further; to become part of the means Jesus uses to secure faith in men and women's hearts - they put us in touch with his mind.
