The Parables of Jesus, 32 Lessons by Don K. Preston
The dominant form of Jesus' teaching was the parables. Most commentators simply use the parables as exercises in "sermonizing," with little emphasis on the historical context and application. In this 32 lesson series, Don K. Preston investigates not only the proper first century meaning of the parables, but he also explores what they can mean to us today.The parables contain some of Jesus' most profound teaching on eschatology, on ethics, and on grace to be found anywhere in his entire ministry!In this series for instance, Preston spends considerable time on the parable commonly known as the Prodigal Son. This wonderful parable- in its original context-- deals with the restoration of Israel, the "lost ten tribes," if you will. However, in establishing this exegetical fact, the parable is also one of the most fantastic illustrations of the grace of God that can be imagined! This series of lessons will, all by itself, inspire you, and give you a greater appreciation of the "God of Grace."If you want to understand the parables better, this series is for you.If you want to understand Jesus' teaching on the end times, this series is for you.If you want to understand God's grace as never before, this series is for you!Price is $24.95 plus shipping.That is less than .75 cents per lesson, for some of the most inspiring, exegetically sound, instructive teaching on the parables to be found anywhere.
