Jesus Was a Captivating Storyteller

During today’s conversation on Back Porch Theology we’re going to talk about how captivating Jesus was as a communicator. Although our Savior was omniscient, He wasn’t obnoxious. He didn’t expound on Torah with elitist, multi-syllabic, proprietary language to prove His other-worldly intellect, instead He told stories. He talked about transcendent things like God and the Kingdom of Heaven with imaginative language and compelling metaphors that engaged His first century audience. In fact, almost half of His sermons were in parabolic – or story – form. The bottom line is, we wouldn’t be tempted to play Candy Crush on our phones if we were listening to Jesus preach! Plus, His stories are just as engaging and relevant today as they were two thousand years ago. In fact, I found myself so enthralled by one while preparing for this episode that I skipped dinner last night, which could almost qualify as a modern-day miracle. So please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible – unless you’re driving or rolling homemade sushi, of course – and come hang out on the porch with us!  Follow Us On Instagram! @BackPorchTheologyPodcast @LisaDHarper @AllisonAllen @Jim.Howard.Co  Sponsored by Talk About from Awana.
