Mysteries of the Parables #2 - Saturday morning
Mysteries of the Parables #3 - Saturday afternoon
Parables and Deaf Culture - Saturday afternoon
Here is a description of the workshops:
The parables of Christ are filled with symbols, hidden meanings, and cultural marks. These stories, first told by Jesus of Nazareth in the 1st century AD, have been read by many people over many centuries. Yet, the problem is... time changes. Our culture today is much different from the culture of Jesus' time. The parables were told for us, but certainly not to us. They were told to people of the 1st century AD who had a different understanding of the world. Come and study with Pastor Noah Buchholz how to read the parables of Christ through 1st century eyes as he explains the culture and history behind the parables and how the parables apply to our lives today as Christians.
