Parables
When Jesus spoke, He often did so in parables—short stories which helped to answer important questions: What is God really like? How are we meant to live? Why do we struggle in doing the right thing? What will life be like in heaven? How is God at work in the world today? Through parables Jesus sought to reveal truths of the Kingdom of God and to teach us the meaning of life. Some are simple to understand while others are more challenging.
