The parables that Jesus Christ used to convey his lessons are rich in their implications. They serve as ongoing standards against which to set our thoughts, actions, and decisions. Together they ask us to acknowledge Jesus and His teachings as the only "door" (John 10: 1) to the fold, the ultimate judge of our beliefs, thoughts, and actions.
Meditations on the Parables of Christ seeks to interpret the parables according to their theological significance while also applying them to individual lives and practices. Mercy and forgiveness constitute the constant themes of the parables. The parables emphasize the unfathomable mercy to our God, which reaches out to the penitent. They invite us to respond positively to God, embrace what He offers us, and be mindful of His will and of our eternal destinies in all our decisions, thoughts, actions, and words.
This study examines the parables of Jesus Christ, exploring and interpreting their meaning and considering their application in our daily lives.
