The Parables of Jesus: Stories of the Kingdom

The Parable of the Prodigal Son

Friend of PAX and pastor of Lunenburg Chapel, Steve Hiltz, joins us to walk us through the Parable of the Prodigal Son (though he is quick to point out that this parable could just as easily be called the Parable of the Loving Father – as it emphasizes the grace of the father more than the sinfulness of the son).

Steve suggests that every person needs, at some point, to come to terms with 4 key relationships (self, things, others, and God), all of which are shown in this parable.

We walk through key points of rebellion, repentance, and joys. The rebellion and repentance of the son, the joy in finding what was lost, the joy of returning to fellowship, the joy of forgiveness of sin and the joy of forgiving sin.

The Parable of the Wedding Feast

The Barren Figtree

Brad takes us through Luke 13, and the parable of the figtree. We look at how God uses the calamaties in our lives – and life in general – to point us to His Grace, and how that Grace leads us to Repentance.
