STORIES JESUS STILL TELLS:

The Parables

By John Claypool

 

WHEN and WHERE 

This 5-week study group will meet on Tuesdays at noon, beginning August 25.  Dwight Lovan will facilitate the meetings via Zoom.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK   

John Claypool brings fresh insight to a selection of parables, allowing us to hear Jesus' calm, persuasive voice still speaking to us through stories like the great banquet, the rich fool, and the final judgment. By providing us with a clearer understanding of the context of these stories in Jesus' immediate culture, Claypool demonstrates how accessible the parables were to his listeners, told in familiar terms that everyone who heard them could grasp. And so it is with us, Claypool believes. When we open the deep places in our being to the parables―these stories Jesus still tells―then in a moment of surprise and insight, we who listen recognize ourselves in the characters and the decisions they face. The stories are no longer about them, but about us, and the opportunity for illumination and transformation in our own lives.
