Lost Parables of Jesus

May 12, 2024    Joel Brantner

The Bible tells us that Jesus was full of grace and truth. That's 100% of each not 50% one and 50% the other. Typically we are bent to side heavily on either truth or grace. This is why many churches are divided. They either let everything go and call it "grace" or they call out every little infraction in someone's life and call it "truth." Jesus was equally both and this is one of the main goals of the Christian; to hold both truth and grace with the same measure. The parables of Luke 15 reveal to us the heart of God and helps us to balance the law of God. Without an understanding of Luke 15, one will be hard pressed to understand most of the Bible...particularly, the whole reason why Jesus came.
