Learn how to read, interpret, and understand the parables of Jesus.
The parables of Jesus—like the Good Samaritan, the Prodigal Son, and the Laborers in the Vineyard—make up the most distinctive element of his teaching and are essential to our common memory of Jesus. However, almost all of them open themselves to multiple interpretations, leaving interpreters to scratch their heads and argue with one another for centuries.
In this book, Greg Carey explores six of Jesus’ stories to understand how to read them, interpret them, and understand what they mean for our own lives today.
The Leader Guide contains everything needed to guide a group through the six-week study including session plans, activities, and discussion questions, as well as multiple format options.
