There's renewed interest today in story telling. I was in a bookstore the other day and I noticed there is now a storyteller's magazine and they are having conventions all over the land where people who are gifted in the art of storytelling come and tell their stories.

Many of us have heard this story so many times it might be helpful to update it and put it into modern language. Here's a contemporary version of the parable.

The setting for the teaching or this parable began with a question, the kind of question asked by those who don't want an answer. It was asked by someone who thought he knew the answer. The one asking the question was a religious Jew, an expert in the law of Moses. Such men were sometimes called lawyer or the other word was scribes...

If you have ever watched the President of the United States deliver the State of the Union Address in recent years, you know that at some point in his speech he will point to the balcony and introduce an ordinary citizen as a real hero in this country.

We have been talking about ''What Would Jesus Do'' and truly we want to be a church that would carry the ministry of Jesus in to the next century. We have talked about seeing people as Jesus saw them. We have to see through His eyes if we are to do what He would do. We talked about touching people as Jesus touched them. We talked about loving people as Jesus loved them...

During the Zenith years of the Green Bay Packers under the leadership of legendary coach, Vince Lombardi, something very unusual happened. The Packers lost a game to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field that should have been an automatic win for them. Lombardi was livid. When the team plane landed back in Green Bay, Lombardi bused the team right back to...

The story begins with a ''certain lawyer'' coming to Jesus and asking him a question. A lawyer in Jesus day was not only someone who was considered to be an expert in legal affairs, but was also considered to be an expert in the law of God. A lawyer in those days was someone who devoted much of his time to the reading and studying of the law of God. In their discussion...

Over the past twelve weeks we've looked at a few disciplines, or habits, that we exercise in order to become a more mature disciple of Christ. In fact, Paul told Timothy that he should discipline himself for the very purpose of becoming more Christ-like. If you've noticed, these disciplines such...

''On one occasion,'' says the text. On a certain occasion, like, ''Once upon a time. It happened.'' There are no details of where or when but it happened. An educated, religious, titled man asked a question of our Lord. Often people ask questions, not to get an answer but to demonstrate their wit or to sharpen their minds on the grinding stone of argument. Sometimes...

After more than thirty years of reading, teaching, and preaching Scripture, it becomes difficult to recall each time a particular Scripture passage is read. But I remember well one reading of the parable of the Good Samaritan. On September 11, 2011, representatives of various faiths in Center City Philadelphia were invited to...

Our Lord, true poet that He was, had a great liking for pictorial teaching, and in all the pictures of His gallery none is more remarkable than this one. The scene, familiar to them all; the robbery, an occurrence they all dreaded; the ecclesiastics, whom they knew so well; the Samaritan, whom they all despised-these made a...

There are those in our world today who talk about the obsoleteness of the Bible. That argument is the foundation for political correctness. It goes like this, "Bible writers lived in simpler times therefore, we have to update truth on the matters of abortion, homosexuality, and traditional marriage, etc." Is the Bible relevant or not? You heard me...

Today we come to pay our tribute to those who have died so that others might live. And we have come to honor military personnel and public servants who place their lives on the line every day so that we might live a life of peace and tranquility. I struggled over a text for this message. But when I came to this passage in...

Jesus liked to tell stories. He made up stories about fictitious people that would capture the imagination of his audience, allow them to set aside some of their cultural notions, and grapple with reality from a new perspective. It was a tactic he often used to help people better understand God. It was also a way to force people to...
