Learn how to read, interpret, and understand the parables of Jesus.

We love stories. That’s why we go to movies, read books, and listen to friends recount an experience. That’s also why teachers use the technique of storytelling to make a difficult concept easier for us to process. Jesus told stories, or parables, for that very reason—and to help us understand how God wants us to live life. Sometimes, however, stories like the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son can be interpreted in more than one way. Even Bible scholars are divided on their meanings. In Stories Jesus Told, you’ll explore six of Jesus’ parables to learn how to read, interpret, and live them in your daily life.

In this session, Greg Carey discusses the Parable of the Soils. He explains the various allegorical interpretations of the different kinds of soils, and shares his own understanding of the parable’s message.
