Jesus Said What? You've Got to be Kidding Me

Jesus made some crazy statements while on earth: “Love Your Enemies.” “Pray for people who persecute you.” “Don’t worry about the future or anything.” “Do good and lend without expecting anything in return.”

 

Many of these outrageous statements we discover in parables Jesus spoke. The Bible records forty parables—simple stories—Christ spoke in the latter part of His public ministry. We read many of these stories and think, “Did Jesus say that? You’ve got to be kidding me!” What was the purpose of these often-misunderstood word pictures? Were they morality lessons? Riddles designed to challenge those seeking truth? Something else altogether?

 

This 5-week journey, starting Sunday, July 10, reveals the heart of Jesus and shows us the importance of living out these life-changing lessons.  We hope you join us!
