The parable of the lost son is a well-known story about redemption. Did you know the that the bulk of this story is dedicated to the celebrations when the son returned? Did the son deserve it? No! The father realized that the only way he could be fully redeemed was to lift his shame by treating him exactly the opposite way the world and his brother would have expected. Join us as we start a new series looking at some of the parables of Jesus and more importantly, discover how they look back at us.
Everyone loves a good story, especially when you see your own life paralleled in the yarn.
Perhaps this is why Jesus used parables so often to teach his disciples about God and how to live as kingdom people. His parables acted as windows to see the heart of God and mirrors that reflected something of the change and transformation he desires for His people. Join us at BBC as we take a closer look at some of Jesus’s familiar (and not so familiar) parables and explore their symbolism and insights for us today.
