Training for Children's Ministry Course-12: Teaching Parables

Jesus' parables are full of great characters and events but it can be tricky to work out exactly what Jesus is teaching. Children particularly struggle with parables because they do not grasp figurative language in the same way that adults do. Using worked examples Andy Gawn helps those who teach children to firstly get Jesus' meaning straight and then think about how to make connections between story and reality clear for children.

Length: 12mins
