Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables he told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so his people might comprehend his message about the kingdom of God clearly.

Each parable broken down.

I love how he broke down each parable and how they flowed together to ultimately tell the true story that heaven can only be gained through Christ.

This is truly a must hear book

I thought I was well versed on most of our Lord's parables until hearing Pastor John explain them verse by verse.

Story of God's Kingdom

It was informative, but move through chapters fast,I'm going to have to listen with my Bible in hand a few more times. This book bored me at times, so I struggled to get through it.
