The parables of Jesus were told to a culture much different than ours. Those who heard His words were, for the most part, workers in an agrarian society, living close to the land. As such, these word stories he gives about things such as seeds, planting, harvest, crop failure, wineskins and patches had a much deeper meaning to them than they do to us. It would help us to understand the parables Jesus told, if we could see them in a context that is more relevant to our modern-day culture. This recasting into modern terms will help the reader to fully appreciate some of the out-of-culture elements in the parables. After reading them, we can go back to the original words of Jesus, with a fresh outlook. The study also has a suggested “heart examination” section, in which we can ask how the Lord would have us apply what we’ve gleaned to our personal lives. This study would be perfect for an intense self-reflection, or group Bible study.
