Some of the most memorable teachings of Jesus were delivered as parables and are found in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke (the Synoptic Gospels). This study focuses on the parables unique to Matthew, and those developed by Luke. Many of these parables have the power to change or alter one's image of God and how God relates to people, others deal with how God expects us to relate to each other. The study explores different ways the parables can be interpreted while allowing participants to use their own judgment. The parables offer a glimpse into the kingdom of God and invite us to think in new and fresh ways.
