Have you ever been to a 4D or 5D theater? It’s an immersive story-telling experience that invites you to hear, watch, and feel the film. Jesus taught in extended metaphors called parables, and these parables were the ancient world’s version of a 4D theater. They were immersive experiences that invited the audience into the story to see God, others, and themselves differently.
The purpose of the series “Jesus, the Storyteller” is to understand the complexity and purpose of parables. By exploring Jesus’ stories, we’ll hear the messages embedded in each from a cultural standpoint and find an enriched understanding of the heart of God and the mission of Christ.
