Lately I have been reading The Chronicles of Narnia. Just finished The Magician’s Nephew today. I have really enjoyed the Narnia series so far.
The Narnia books are absolutely facinating. C. S. Lewis definitely had a vivid imagination.
Jesus’ use of parables in His stories and teaching is even more facintating. In several of His parables He started off with “the kingdom of heaven is like…” and goes on to tell a story that strikes right to the heart of His hearers.
The meaning of a parable I have heard is “an earthly story with a heavenly meaning”. Jesus’ parables are true to life stories that are tied to the Christian life.
We would all be smart to try our hardest to tie modner-day happenings and tie them to the Christian life in like manner.
Your questions, thoughts, comments, etc are always welcomed and encouraged.
God bless. Grace and Peace.
