God Bless and welcome students to this new way of exploring the Bible and learning more about our Bible lessons. There are many different Bible stories you may already know and have heard before but through this e-learning module we want to explore parables.
What are parables? A parable is a short allegorical story designed to illustrate or teach some truth, religious principle, or moral lesson (APA). As a part of being a faithful Christian, by learning about parables these skills will help us deal with life situations through a more spiritual and biblical aspect. Jesus was an artist in the telling of parables and told them in such a way that they were easy to visualize, and thus to remember (Graham, 2004). Allowing us to use these learning tools we hope this will encourage you to explore the Bible more often and gain a solid foundation of the Bible scripture.
