Review: Parables of Jesus

If you are reading this review on the Sabbath, then I would like to wish you a Sabbath filled with new wisdom for God’s Word.

This week’s review is the for the short film about Jesus’ parables.


Here are seven short dramas portraying the parables of Jesus through the lens of Bible times.

The following parables are covered

The Lost Son (a.k.a The Prodigal Son) Luke 10

I liked how the presenter went into a deeper comparison of the two brothers and how they had both been selfish.  I also like how the presenter brings the character of God into the picture, when thinking of how the prodigal son was received by his father.

The Midnight Visitor (Luke 11)

This parable can be found in Luke 11 and refers to a story about a visitor who needed help at night.  His persistence enabled him to be a blessing to someone else.

I appreciated how God’s motive for giving us abundant love is lifted up.

The Good Samaritan (Luke 10)

The presenter asked and answered interesting, reflective questions.

The Unmerciful Servant (Matthew 18)

Forgiveness is difficult to do sometimes, but the presenter put it into perspective, through the lens of God’s Word.

The Treasure and the Pearl (Matthew 13)

I really liked the talk of the joy of being in the will of God and how this is the most important thing in life.

The Dinner (Luke 14)

This parable reminded me of the amazing grace of God.  We can come as we are and He will accept us - no gifts required.  The presenter reminds us of the urgency of this mission. Today is the day to surrender your life to Jesus.

The Manager (Luke 16)

I like how blessing others is encouraged, and the value of blessing others is spoken of as beyond value. 

I watched, Parables of Jesus, via Vision Video’s website.

Thank you for reading this review. Until next time - peace be with you.
