“One busy day near the end of Jesus’ second year of public ministry, He had an encounter with some hostile Pharisees.

These religious leaders challenged Jesus about allowing His disciples to pluck grain on the Sabbath and about Him healing a man on the Sabbath.  Some among the Pharisees even went so far as to accuse Jesus of casting out demons “by Beelzebub, the ruler of demons” (Matthew 12:24).  The episode signaled a turning point in Jesus’ teaching style.  Whereas before He had taught sermons peppered with prophetic texts from the Old Testament, He would now only speak in parables when He taught publicly.”

Join Holly Nelson as we explore many of the parables Jesus told in the Gospels.  As we examine these stories, you will discover how Jesus used this teaching style to clarify the truth with those with “ears to hear” but hide the truth from those who rejected His message.

We will spend two weeks on each lesson.
