MetadataShow full item record
This project utilizes expository preaching in preaching the parables in Luke 14-16 at Medway Baptist Church. Chapter 1 identifies both the project and the community surrounding Medway Baptist Church. Chapter 2 contains the exposition of four selected parables focusing on context, theological implications and the main idea of each parable. Chapter 3 focuses on the principles for interpreting parables such as historical and cultural context, lexical and syntactical context, the main idea of the parable, and literal versus figurative language. The methodology of the project is found in chapter 4 as it relates to the recruitment process, meetings, and a summary of each chapter. Chapter 5 evaluates the success of the project by the feedback of the participants and reflection of the goals.
