    based on 1 rating

    If the gospel is good news why doesn’t everyone respond with joy? Jesus says he tells parables to filter out those who can't understand.

    Do you see what I see? When you look at this picture, I wonder what you see? A young lady in silhouette, or a cartoon man playing the saxophone? There’s only one picture, but people see different things. By the end of Mark 3, the disciples must be wondering the same thing about Jesus. How more

  • Sowing And Harvest Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on May 30, 2017

    The heart must be prepared by the Spirit to receive the Word and yield a spiritual harvest. Jesus discussed the four types of soil and their impact on the Kingdom. One tiny seed sown in the right place has unbelievable potential.

  • Jesus, The Teacher Series

    Contributed by Tim Smith on Mar 16, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    When Jesus taught, he did so in parables. Now this was not unique in Jesus’ day for most rabbis or teachers taught in parables. The Greek word for parable means “thrown along something else.” Parables are about comparisons.
