Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures. Some of them were no more than fleeting remarks about commonplace incidents, objects, or persons. In fact, the most compact of all Jesus' short stories does not even fill a complete verse of Scripture. Yet the all were filled with profound spiritual lessons that He wanted His listeners to hear and understand. Jesus told these parables so they would clearly comprehend His message about the kingdom of God and the reason He had come to earth. In the Parables Workbook, master expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur draws on his years spent studying and explaining the Word of God to guide readers through some of the most famous and influential short stories that Jesus told. Each session contains the following: Biblical focus: the primary passages on which the session draws Another look: questions to facilitate review of content in the book Biblical connections: questions that focus on the main Bible passage Highlighting the lesson: questions that focus on the central teaching points Lasting implications: questions to help draw out personal conclusions Daily assignments: five sets of questions that reflect on the parable, the point, the purpose, the principles, and the practical application This workbook has been designed to enhance readers' experience of reading the book and is intended both for individual use and for study in a small-group setting.

One of the key teachings in all of the Bible is that of Matthew Chapter 7 verse 14. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, spoke about a/the way to eternal life (heaven) as being one of great difficulty. In other words, Jesus was saying that if someone wants eternal life it wont be easy and there must be a searching and an uncovering in finding the way. In this book God uses the life and words of an ordinary man whos changed life as a compass in/to helping you/people find that/the narrow path to eternal life.

The mustard seed. The wineskins. The sheep and the goats. These and dozens more parables enabled Jesus to help his followers--then and now--grasp spiritual truth. R. T. Kendall, who for years preached from Martyn Lloyd-Jones's pulpit at Westminster Chapel in London, unwraps Jesus's simple stories one by one, uncovering profound meaning. Readers will learn how parables safeguard the secrets of God, reveal his sovereignty, and actually survey salvation--from conversion, through the work of the Holy Spirit, to what happens to a believer at death. As readers begin to understand the purpose, promise, and paradox of the parables, they will get to know, in a new and fresh way, the One who told them. Two thousand years ago, as well as today, the parables enliven and enlighten the hearts of all with ears to hear.

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from the twentieth century to the first century. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into modern context. It explains not only what the Bible means but also how it can speak powerfully today.

An illustrated foray into the hidden truth about the use of psychoactive mushrooms to connect with the divine. • Draws parallels between Vedic beliefs and Judeo-Christian sects, showing the existence of a mushroom cult that crossed cultural boundaries. • Contends that the famed philosophers' stone of the alchemist was a metaphor for the mushroom. • Confirms and extends Robert Gordon Wasson's hypothesis of the role of the fly agaric mushroom in generating religious visions. Rejecting arguments that the elusive philosophers' stone of alchemy and the Hindu elixir of life were mere legend, Clark Heinrich provides a strong case that Amanita muscaria, the fly agaric mushroom, played this role in world religious history. Working under the assumption that this "magic mushroom" was the mysterious food and drink of the gods, Heinrich traces its use in Vedic and Puranic religion, illustrating how ancient cultures used the powerful psychedelic in esoteric rituals meant to bring them into direct contact with the divine. He then shows how the same mushroom symbols found in Hindu scriptures correspond perfectly to the symbols of ancient Judaism, Christianity, the Grail myths, and alchemy, arguing that miraculous stories as disparate as the burning bush of Moses and the raising of Lazarus from the dead can be easily explained by the use of this strange and powerful mushroom. While acknowledging the speculative nature of his work, Heinrich concludes that in many religious cultures and traditions the fly agaric mushroom--and in some cases ergot or psilocybin mushrooms--had a fundamental influence in teaching humans about the nature of God. His insightful book truly brings new light to the religious history of humanity.
