Parables Series Part 2
Time & Location
About The Event
Deacon Jim will continue to explore a number of parables in this 5 part series. Each session is independent of each other. Series runs from January 20 - February 17.
February 10: Topic 9 “Law or Love?”
The parable of The Good Samaritan makes a radical demand upon us: the one who has a claim on our time, energy, and resources is the one who is in need. Jesus makes that demand because that is the way of Jesus Christ, the Word made Flesh. That’s how God treats us!
February 17: Topic 10 “The Man God Helped”
The story of the Rich Man and Lazarus is clearly one of judgment. Again and again, the Gospel shows us that the anawim—the meek, poor, neglected—are especially important to God. Those who are ostracized and persecuted because of their faith in the Son of Man receive their unbelievably Great Reward. That is the Gospel proclaimed by this parable, which is the Good News.
