As Christians, we live in world that is foreign to us. We live in a world that contradicts the life that Jesus lived - a life that He said we could also live. This message examines the reasons why we face contradictions in our lives and how to deal with them.
In the Gospels, Jesus uses a method of teaching known as parables to communicate principles about the kingdom of God. A parable compares two things by placing them side by side. By using parables, Jesus compares the unfamiliar, the kingdom of God, to the familiar, nature and life experiences.
