Sheep, Parties & Money:
The Parables of Jesus in Luke 15 & 16


In Luke 15 & 16 Jesus teaches two groups of people – the Pharisees & tax collectors and sinners.  The Pharisees get really frustrated with Jesus for allowing the sinners to listen to him!  How will Jesus address this issue?  By telling stories.  He tells the crowd 5 stories in total and as he tells the stories he surprises us, by inviting the sinners and tax collectors to repent and challenging the religious Pharisees because of their hard hearts.

The important theme of money is addressed several times throughout these two chapters.
