The religious people were highly critical that Jesus was spending his time with the people they called ‘sinnners’, and so Jesus responded with two stories. We recognise that those who are lost, are those who are separated from their relationship with God, and this can happen for many reasons. But whatever the reason, Jesus sees their value and wants everyone to know that the lost are worth the effort.
We live in a world that has always been shaped by stories. Jesus knew this, and told life-giving stories that contained deep truths. In this series we’ll explore how these parables shine a light on God’s character, change our perspective, and give us practical direction.
