A Wedding and a Banquet

Posted in Jesus, parable by LifeSpringChurch on March 19th, 2017

David Lose calls this parable "an ugly parable" for good reason.  It has wedding invitees that turn down the king's invitation to his son's wedding banquet, violence, distruction of a city, and kicking a poor man out of the banquet who actually accepted the invitation.  The sermon explores what is going on in another one of Jesus' parables.  This one was addressed to the Jewish religious leaders who had rejected Jesus.

Lost Sheep

Posted in , Jesus, parable by LifeSpringChurch on March 13th, 2017

This sermon comes from Jesus' parable about a shepherd who leaves 99 sheep, safely pastured, to go find one lost sheep.  Listeners would have seen the believed the shepherd in the story to be foolish for putting the 99 at risk.  Whch helped drive home Jesus' major point about the importance of a single person in the mind of Christ. The sermon explores the way Jesus regarded the "little one."
