What are parables? They are teachings from Jesus that “reveal the nature of the kingdom of God and/or indicate how a child of the kingdom should act.” (Bailey, Through Peasant Eyes, p.11) In every parable, the original hearer is pressed to understand something and/or act in a certain way in response to the parable. As we prepare for Easter, we are going to take a closer look at some stories told by Jesus and explore how they are still relevant to us today.
