How to Preach from a Parable

2019 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Workshop


Speaking in parables was Jesus’ preferred form of teaching.  Both his world and ours are drawn to these concise, poignant stories. This seminar analyzes the parable in its ancient cultural context, illustrates how parables can be interpreted, outlines a few pitfalls, and provides a case study using one of Jesus’ most difficult stories, The Parable of the Friend at Midnight (Luke 11:1–13).
