The Parables Of Jesus
The Lost Parables (Luke 15:1-32)
Though often taught separately, the parables of the lost sheep, the lost coin, and the lost son are in fact part of a trilogy of parables, each examining different aspects of God’s redemption story. Perhaps even more intriguing is ABOUT whom Jesus was speaking when He told the lost parables.
We all love stories. Ever since we were young. It’s the way we learn about who we are. So is it any surprise that Jesus uses stories to teach His children? And Jesus’ stories are so compelling that they are known throughout the world, both in and out of church. Much more than entertainment, Jesus' stories challenge all of us to continuously adjust our view of life, our thinking, and our way of living. For throughout the parables of Jesus, we are in fact being invited into a bigger story. His story.
