An exercise in understanding parables
Read the parable in Luke 10: 25-37.
This parable only occurs in the gospel of Luke.
1. Who was this parable addressed to?
2. How many characters appear in the story?
3. What lesson do you get from the parable?
4. Now create you own parable based on modern day characters. Use the same number of characters as there are in Luke 10:25-37. Try and bring out a similar lesson. Remember to use contemporary characters in your story. Share your parable with the group.
