Revealed: Stories with a Purpose
Revealed Part 5: The Parable of the Great Reversal
‘Revealed: Stories with Purpose’ is a study of the parables of Jesus found in the gospel of Luke. Parables are a form of indirect communication intended to lead the hearer – sometimes unwittingly – into the truth. Direct communication is great for conveying basic information and facts, but indirect communication finds a way into the back window of our hearts and minds, confronting what one thinks is reality. This is why parables are so powerful. They allow us to see what we wouldn’t otherwise. They are stories with an intent, analogies through which one is able to see truth. In this series, we’ll see how God is going to awaken our insight, stimulate our conscience, and move us to action.
