This weekend, we will be taking a look at the parable of the unjust steward. This is the most difficult parable to interpret. However, once we unravel the layers, the truth that Jesus is communicating to His disciples is just as powerful and impactful for us today. Jesus warns his disciples to be wise and shrewd in their dealings with others. Just because we are believers doesn’t mean we operate with blind trust and naiveté. The title of this week’s message is “SHREWD.”
This weekend, we will be looking at the parable of the sower, although the parable is really about the different types of soil. Each different type received the same seed, but only the good soil produced a fruitful harvest. Jesus used this parable to make his listeners take a critical look at their spiritual lives to see if they were bearing fruit. The title of this weekend’s message is “FRUITFUL.”
Today we will be looking at what’s known as Genre or Type of Literature found in the Bible. My information is coming from Grant Osborne’s Hermeneutical Spiral.
