“The Stories that Jesus told: Exploring the Challenge of the Parables of Jesus”
9AM – 1PM , Saturday 3 March 2018
at Bangsar Lutheran Church, Kuala Lumpur
Jesus is a master storyteller. But the parables he tells are more than interesting plotlines that captivate his audience. They reveal the character of God and his kingdom, announce the expectation God has for his people, and challenge the assumptions of the hearers in order to orientate their lives in the light of the coming of the kingdom. In this seminar, we will hear the parables afresh and learn the impact and challenge they have in our everyday discipleship during these trying times that we live in.
