About the Book

Join New Testament scholar Kenneth Schenck as he reflects deeply on the ways Jesus revealed truths about his mission and the kingdom of God through parables, particularly as they are recorded in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.

Based on the solid scholarship found in Schenck’s two books, Jesus—The Mission and Jesus—Portraits from the Gospels, The Parables of Jesus provides thirty days of deeper devotions on teachings such as the parable of the sower, the mustard seed, the yeast and the dough, the pearl of great price, the net, and the weeds. Each devotion will challenge you to engage, examine, and explore one of Jesus’ parables and then take it to God in prayer.

KENNETH SCHENCK is academic dean and professor of New Testament and Christian ministry at Wesley Seminary in Marion, IN. Dr. Schenck is the author of several books, including God’s Plan Fulfilled, Jesus—the Mission, and Writings of Paul Collection.
