Finding the Treasure Within

Parables in the Gospel of Luke: What is God’s Kingdom Like?

The parables that are unique to Luke’s Gospel are some of the most vivid and memorable of all the parables. These parables tend to focus more on human relationships than on elements of nature. During the institute we will examine how the parables invite us to identify with the different characters. Placing ourselves into the story is meant to throw us off balance and bring about a new understanding of what relationships in the kingdom of God need to look like. Our study will explore how these parables can help us to become kingdom people.
