We’re starting a new series of blog posts on the Christ Fellowship Church blog. We are going to be looking at sets of 10 things that you should know by heart. I don’t mean that every Christian should have all of the passages we post memorized (thought that would be great!). But you should at least know where these things are in the Bible and why they are so important. We’re going to look mostly at sets of 10 from the Bible, but we’ll through others in for fun as well. So here is the first installment, 10 Parables You Should Know By Heart:
Jesus was a man of words. One of the central aspects of his ministry was his teaching. Just reading through the four gospels in the New Testament we can see that he had no shortage of things to speak about. He taught in many places, to many people, and in many ways. One of most memorable ways in which he taught was through parables. These parables have some of the deepest and most intriguing teachings of Jesus. Any Christian should be very familiar with his parables. Here are 10 that you should know by heart.
Parable of the Sower – Mark 4:1-20
Parable of the Good Samaritan – Luke 10:25-37
Parable of the Tax Collector and the Pharisee – Luke 18:9-14
Parable of the Talents – Matthew 25:14-30
Parable of the Prodigal Son – Luke 15:11-32
Parable of the Unforgiving Servant – Matthew 18:21-35
Parable of the Vineyard Workers – Matthew 20:1-16
Parable of the Rich Fool – Luke 12:13-21
Parable of Wicked Tenants – Mark 12:1-11
Parable of the Wedding Feast – Matthew 22:1-14
Take some time and read these parables. Learn what they are teachings. Learn from our Lord as he teaches.
