about this item

Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures. Some of them were no more than fleeting remarks about commonplace incidents, objects, or persons. In fact, the most compact of all Jesus' short stories does not even fill a complete verse of Scripture. Yet the all were filled with profound spiritual lessons that He wanted His listeners to hear and understand. Jesus told these parables so they would clearly comprehend His message about the kingdom of God and the reason He had come to earth.


In the Parables Workbook, master expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur draws on his years spent studying and explaining the Word of God to guide readers through some of the most famous and influential short stories that Jesus told. Each session contains the following:


Biblical focus: the primary passages on which the session draws

Another look: questions to facilitate review of content in the book

Biblical connections: questions that focus on the main Bible passage

Highlighting the lesson: questions that focus on the central teaching points

Lasting implications: questions to help draw out personal conclusions

Daily assignments: five sets of questions that reflect on the parable, the point, the purpose, the principles, and the practical application


This workbook has been designed to enhance readers' experience of reading the book and is intended both for individual use and for study in a small-group setting.
