The parables, found in the Gospels of the New Testament, were very Jewish. They were told by Yeshua (Jesus) to reveal Himself and His Father to the hearer. In this class, students will study the parables as they relate to the Old Testament, Jewish culture and language, and us today. What did Yeshua (Jesus) want His first century listeners to learn from those parables, and what do they still say to us today?
