The Parables of Jesus from a Hebraic Perspective
One-third of the Messiah's words in the Synoptic Gospels are in the form of parable. In this course we discover that understanding the first-century Galilean Hebraic culture, as well as, the nuances of the parable genre itself unlock layers of meaning for us. The Messiah used the parable as a primary teaching tool in order to provoke and challenge; amuse and annoy; disturb and comfort; confront and affirm; and the parable always brings us to a point of a passionate decision to action of whether we are in or out with regard to the vision of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
