Parables of Jesus: Applications for Contemporary Life, Cycle B
Author: Richard Gribble
The parable is the most well-known literary form presented in the gospels — and since narrative or story sermons are such a prominent element in the contemporary pulpit, pastors are preaching on the parable texts more frequently than ever.
This book provides a thorough and complete examination of each of the parables in Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary. Each parable study includes:
– discussion of the theme
– spiritual food for the journey
– application of the parable to contemporary life
– openings for preaching
– points of challenge and questions to ponder
– exegesis and explanation of the parable
– context of the parable
These studies will be a classic resource for preaching… or useful for Bible study and inspiration.
