Luke Parables

Luke

During His journey to Jerusalem that lead to His crucifixion, Yeshua told a series of parables which are recorded in the Book of Luke.

These parables address everything from the question, 'What shall I do to inherit eternal life?' through an evaluation of the Kingdom as He found it to a glimpse of what the future kingdom will be like.

    During his final journey to Jerusalem, Y'shua told a series of parables. The first and last of these provide answers to the question, 'What shall I do to inherit eternal life?'
  • Y'shua on Prayer
    In the Luke travel narrative, Y'shua teaches his disciples about prayer. This includes the Lord's Prayer, the parable of the Friend at Midnight, the Unjust Judge and the Publican and the Pharisee.
  • Y'shua on Prayer 2
    Second half of Y'shua's discourse on prayer containing the Unjust Judge and the Publican and the Pharasee.
  • Signs of the Kingdom

  • Conflict with the Pharisees - God and Mammon
    The Luke 16 discourse on God and mammon is a continuation of the running conflict Y'shua had with the Pharisees over money. The Pharisees, being lovers of money, had a warped attitude toward the things of this world.
  • Kingdom Stewardship
    In Luke 12 and Luke 16 Y'shua gives a discourse on what He expects of the managers over His kingdom during the time of His absence. In Luke 12 the master is away at a wedding and will return at a time the servants do not expect. In Luke 16 the parable of the dishonest manager turns on the manager's estimation of the character of the master.
  • Call of the Kingdom to Israel

  • The Nature of the Kingdom
    In this set of Luke parables, Y'shua contrasts the Kingdom of God as it existed in first century Israel with what it should be. Healing on the Sabbath, the parables of the Mustard Seed and the Leaven.
  • The Prodigal Son - 2016
    This parable, where a father has broken relationships with both of his sons, may be a metaphor for Ephraim and Judah. The younger son has been gone for millennia. What will be the attitude of the older brother when he returns?
