WHI-1023 | The Parables of Jesus (Part 6)

When Jesus returns will he separate the sheep and the goats based upon good works? How are we to understand Jesus’ teaching about this in Matthew 25? What about the parable of the wedding banquet; how does this story relate to our view of last things? On this edition of White Horse Inn the hosts will discuss these questions and more as they wrap up their series on the Parables of Jesus.

WHI-1022 | The Parables of Jesus (Part 5)

Jesus taught that a person is not worthy of being his disciple unless that person hates his father and mother. In fact, he goes on to say that a disciple of his must also “hate his own life.” On this program, the hosts will take a look at texts such as this as they discuss parables of costly discipleship in their continuing series through the Parables of Jesus.

WHI-1021 | The Parables of Jesus (Part 4)

What is the basic point of the parable of the Good Samaritan? Most people would probably say that it’s a nice story that teaches us to be helpful to those in need. But as we’ve been seeing in this series, there is a deeper meaning that many overlook. On this program, the hosts will walk through this and other similar parables relating to the theme of sin and grace. The White Horse Inn: know what you believe and why you believe it!

WHI-1020 | The Parables of Jesus (Part 3)

On this program, the hosts will discuss the parable of the Prodigal Son and other similar narratives. Through each of these tales, the point Jesus makes is that something lost is suddenly found. In fact, Jesus taught that his mission was “to seek and save that which was lost.” But in the Prodigal Son story, we find that Jesus’ primary point is to show that the religious leaders of his day, represented by the older brother in the parable, were the ones who were truly lost.

WHI-1019 | The Parables of Jesus (Part 2)

What is the point of the parables? Is there a moral to the story that we should all look for and attempt to follow? Is the point of the wicked tenants parable that we should all try to be good tenants, or is there something else going on here? On this broadcast, the hosts will discuss these questions as they unpack the parable of the wicked tenants and others related to it. And as they will show, Jesus and his forthcoming crucifixion at the hands of Israel’s unfaithful shepherds is really what these messages are all about.

WHI-1018 | The Parables of Jesus (Part 1)

Some say that Jesus taught in parables because this mode of communication is the most effective for large audiences. But is this really what Jesus was up to? What is a parable anyway, and why did Jesus use this particular method of teaching? On this program, the White Horse Inn hosts will answer these questions and more as they begin a new six-part series on the parables of Jesus.
