STORIES

Mark 4:33-34
“Jesus spoke God’s word to them using many illustrations like these. In this way people could understand what he taught. He did not speak to them without using an illustration. But when he was alone with his disciples, he explained everything to them.”

Psalm 78 begins, Open your ears to my teachings, my people. Turn your ears to the words from my mouth. I will open my mouth to illustrate points. I will explain what has been hidden long ago, things that we have heard and known about

That is exactly what Jesus did. Here told stories about things and events that the listeners knew. And in these seemingly simple stories he revealed hidden truths. The stories were some enough that people could pass them on to others.

What stories have you shared?
