Could anything be more familiar to students of the Scriptures than the parables of Jesus? Probably not. And yet, if you were to study all eighteen of them in depth, you would be awed by their ever-unfolding treasures.
Thus, we will look more closely at the context of each parable within the Gospels, learn something of the historical background of first-century Palestine, and let these familiar stories fairly leap off the page and into our hearts and lives. Studying them with friends only enhances your experience.
Each chapter has between four and six thoughtful questions that reveal key themes. The questions are designed to prompt readers to think of new ways they might view such familiar material.
