We began a series last week called Transformative Stories. These are the stories, the parables, that Jesus told as recorded in the gospel of Luke. These parables were told at a historical point in time and resulted from specific situations.
In last week’s passage, Christ’s transformative story arose from a question about His disciples: “Why do John’s disciples fast and pray, as well as the Pharisees, but Your disciples do not?”
This week Jesus’ parable is in response to a situation, one that would have shocked the onlookers. But nothing was quite as shocking as what Jesus would have to say about it.
