The Parable of the Sower

Dear Parents, This week, we looked closely at the Parable of the Sower. The Gospels record dozens of Jesus’ parables. A parable is a story Jesus told to help people understand the kingdom of God. Each parable taught a lesson and revealed secrets of God’s kingdom for those who would understand. (See Matt. 13:10-13.) The […]

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

Parents, Jesus told parables to people when he was teaching. A parable is a story about something that you already know about, that helps you to understand something about God and his kingdom.

Paul’s Escape from Prison

Dear Parents, The first time Paul and Silas set foot on European soil they get a fine initial welcome from God-fearing Lydia. But then things turn ugly. Paul and Silas free a slave girl from an evil spirit. That runs them into deep trouble with the girl’s owners, who had profited handsomely from her misery. […]
