Surprise, Shock, and Gospel: Public Lectures on the Parables of Jesus

November 06, 2018
Location: Mullen Theater

Surprise, Shock, and Gospel: Re-Interpreting the Parables of Jesus Nov. 6 & 13

The Department of Theological and Pastoral Studies presents three lectures on the parables of Jesus by the popular speaker and writer the Rev. Dr. George M. Smiga STD.

All presentations will be in Little Theater Mullen Building Room 113 from 7-8pm, with a Q+A session to follow from 8-8:30pm. All are welcome.

Jesus preferred to teach in parables. The gospels are filled with these images and stories that are both elusive and powerful. They engage, delight, and disturb those who hear them. Join us to explore new meanings derived from Jesus’ teaching. These sessions will cover what parables are, how they work, and what Jesus' parables reveal about the Kingdom of God.
Father Smiga started with the Parables of Mark on Oct. 30. Next in the series:
  • Tuesday Nov. 6: The Parables of Matthew, including the Parable of the Unmerciful Servant and the Vineyard Workers
  • Tuesday Nov. 13: The Parables of Luke, including the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son
