About the Book

The Parables are indeed a good way to know Jesus on a more personal level! By doing more than just reading them (STUDYING THEM) you can learn the thoughts that were close to His heart. You can become more familiar with the things He thought were important. You can realize that He not only expects you to walk in God's will, but you will learn that He has told you how to do that! He never expected you to live to a certain standard without telling you how to accomplish it! All we have to do is study His word! It is His promise that "all things are possible..." even walking in His will!

About the Author

As an Adult Sunday School class teacher, I occasionally asked a "triovia" question just to keep everyone on their toes and to give them something to look for on their own. these questions were just for fun usually; like "How many wives did David have?" One morning the question was "How many parables did Jesus teach?" I knew there was a list in the back of my Bible so I thought it would be an easy question. Boy was I wrong! Each student it seemed had a different list! First off, I wanted to be able to give them an accurate answer. Second it just took on a life of it's own and I felt like I HAD to have the answer! So I began this study... The more I studied the more I was convinced I was SUPPOSE to teach these special words of Our Christ. As I wrote "lessons" for my class I grew more and more aware of the help I was receiving from the Holy Ghost and I watched as it became a larger project. Now it is a book! Wow! and now my class is MUCH bigger! It is no longer limited to our corner of South Carolina! It amazes me that this book will travel to corners that I will never see. The Holy Spirit spent a lot of time with me so that we all could learn from the words that Jesus spoke all those years ago... God bless and enjoy...Mary
