Questions to think about as you read (page 484 at back of book)

  1. Why might Jesus have used parables as a way to teach people?
  2. What can you learn from Jesus’ parables that you can use in your own life?
  3. If you would have heard Jesus’ sermon, what do you think you would have done?  Would you have followed him?
  4. Why did Jesus’ teaching bother some of the religious leaders?
  5. Jesus explained that he is the “bread of life” – the source of sustenance and satisfaction.  What can you do to gain a deeper satisfaction in your relationship with Jesus?
