Live Online Class (Fall 2020)
Jesus was many things: preacher, miracle worker, heir to King David, the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world. But he was also a storyteller. Jesus was not only the hero of the greatest story ever told, he was the greatest storyteller that ever lived.
The parables of Jesus are evocative and provocative, with unforgettable characters, plots, and images that puzzle our minds but penetrate our hearts. They can be hard to understand—in fact, the apostles themselves asked Jesus why his parables were so hard to grasp. Jesus invites us to enter these stories so that the Holy Spirit can enter our lives. They have the power to change us from the inside out if we will let them in.
Through seven sessions, Greg Smith will move through the parables, exploring their context and meaning. This class will be more discussion-oriented than many of the lecture-based courses offered through LANE. This class will be available on its own or with a LANE
