Jesus is a story-tellin’ man, as the kids song says.
Jesus loved to tell stories. Not the stories kids usually tell that are long on words and short on truth.
These stories are commonly called parables (which simply means story). Jesus told parables of sheep, seed, treasure, feasts, work, and much more. Jesus told stories about ordinary, everyday things, things everyone would know about and understand. But, each of these stories have one thing in common: they uncover the surprising nature of grace & his kingdom.
