Parable of the Great Feast

Another Sabbath day, Jesus healed a man with dropsy. Again the Pharisees were angry. Then Jesus told them this story. A great man gave a feast.


He invited many special guests. However, every one of them made excuses and refused to come. So he said to his servants, “Go out quickly into the streets and bring in to my feast the poor people and the crippled people.” Jesus was telling the people that the Pharisees were like the special guests. They were important religious leaders, but they refused to come to God by believing in Jesus. They will not have a place in heaven. Luke 14:15-24 http://globalrecordings.net

Parable of the Good Shepherd

Jesus told a parable against the Pharisees. He said that they were like hired shepherds.

Parable of the Good Shepherd

A hired shepherd cares about his wages, but he does not care so much for the sheep. The Pharisees did not care for God’s people, and they would not believe in Jesus. Jesus said, “I am the Good Shepherd. I will give My life to save My sheep.” Jesus also told them that He is like the door of the sheepfold. You can see this in the picture. The sheep are safe while the shepherd guards the doorway. Jesus protects His people so that the evil one cannot come and destroy them. John 10:1-21 globalrecordings.net
