The Parable of the Talents

The parable of the talents is found in Matthew 25. Many of us have read it, studied it, and maybe even taught it. Did you know that the parable is talking about us today? This week Chris breaks down the parable and we’ll learn how we need to look at the slaves and talents and reflect in our own lives and what God has given us to steward.

We will learn that this is more than simply about money. The talents represent unique gifts that have been given to you. Are you using those talents to further the Gospel or are you burying them and keeping those gifts from others? It’s a question we should be asking ourselves and our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ regularly.

The World of Jesus

By Dr. William Marty

Sometimes it’s hard to place yourself in the world of the New Testament. As you enter the time and place of Jesus and His disciples, it’s easy to put western thinking and life on the pages of Scripture. In Jesus’ time, there are confusing practices, new people groups, and even unexplained religious conflicts. How did it all come about? Dr. William Marty walks you through the history leading up to the arrival of Jesus in the book The World of Jesus.

Get to know the times in which Jesus lived, so you’ll better understand His teaching and ministry. And along the way, discover how God prepared the world for the One who would turn it upside down.
