James Tissot, 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem'As Jesus moves toward Jerusalem we see his teaching increase, along with his opposition. In these lessons we'll examine with care the message of a number of familiar parables and incidents:

  • Parable of the Prodigal Son -- a story of a father's love, and an inability for the stay-at-home son to enjoy intimacy with his father.
  • The Thankful Leper -- one who wasn't so interested in the healing as the Healer.
  • Parable of the Persistent Widow -- who models for us unremitting prayer in faith.
  • The Rich Young Ruler -- who chooses his comfortable life over close fellowship with Jesus.
  • The Parable of the Minas -- to servants to who much is given, much is expected.
  • The Triumphal Entry -- Jesus' bitter-sweet entry into the city that ultimately rejects him.
  • The Widow's Mite -- a powerful lesson in sacrificial and proportional giving.

Included are several teachings on the Second Coming of Jesus with power and great glory and an admonition to watch and pray. Sign up here to keep learning at Jesus' feet.
