PARABLES SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

This a one-verse story. It's marvelous how Jesus can take just one little statement and pack it with so much truth. There's so much in what Jesus tells us in this one verse of Scripture. We've been looking at the parables of the Lord Jesus in Matthew 13 for several weeks. These are called the mystery parables. There are seven of these parables which the Lord Jesus tells in succession, one after the other. In these parables...

And would you open your Bibles please to Mark chapter four. We've been preaching through the gospel of Mark. Mark chapter four. You have it. Look up here. I want to ask you a question. A Why is it that when the preacher preaches some people are saved and some people are not? Why is it that some believe the Bible and some don't? Why is it that some go on for God and bear fruit...

I'm beginning a series of messages that I've always wanted to do on probably my favorite portions of Scripture in the Bible - the parables of Jesus. I'm entitling this series ''Virtual Reality - God's Favorite Stories.'' Did you know that 1/3 of all of the things that Jesus taught, He taught with parables? Someone has defined a parable as an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. That...

Well, if you have your Bible, please turn to Luke chapter 8. We're starting a new series today on the parables. We're going to look at probably six or eight parables. And, I've entitled this series, ''The Mysteries of the Kingdom.'' That's what Jesus said about the parables. He said to His disciples, because they were asking Him, ''Why do You teach them parables?'' He said, ''To you...

This morning we're going to look at two parables, the parable of the hidden treasure and the parable of the pearl of great price. These parables are quite similar. In both cases you have a man who finds something of great value. And in both cases the man sells all that he has in order to purchase the thing of value. The treasure hidden...

This striking parable, or allegory, acted out by the prophet of the Lord, has by some been attributed to Jeremiah instead of Zechariah. The reason for this is that St. Matthew in his account of the betrayal and trial of Jesus says that the price paid to Judas by the chief priests, and the use of the blood money in purchasing the potter's field, was...

The joy of finding something that has been lost is a remarkably great experience, whether it is something as small as a key or money or a credit card, or if it is something more emotional like finding a pet or something life-changing like finding a lost child, marriage, career or dream. Losing anything, great or small, is a real-life experience. What have you lost...

Now as you're turning to Mark's gospel and the fourth chapter … have you ever wondered why it is that the same people can sit in the same worship experience and hear the same message, sing the same songs and yet one walks out changed while the other one just walks out? Why is it that going to worship helps some people and doesn't help other people? Well, that's...

There's a story about a student from MIT who spent an entire summer going to the Harvard football field every day wearing a black and white striped shirt walking up and down the field for ten or fifteen minutes throwing birdseed and blowing a whistle. Then he would walk off the field. At the end of the summer, it came time for the first Harvard home football game. As the game was...

Introduction: Luke 15 may well be the best-loved and least understood chapter in the entire Bible. This chapter is among many people's favorite sections of scripture. And for good reason! Luke 15 is a chapter of parables. It contains three parables, two of which are among Jesus most unforgettable stories. Who doesn't love the picture of a tender shepherd...
