To teach a lesson Jesus often used a parable, an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. By basing situations on real life, parables can reveal spiritual truth to listeners. Incredibly, parables compel sincere seekers to discover the truth, yet cloak that truth from those that would oppose its teaching. Today many stories that transcend social, racial and cultural barriers do so because they contain spiritual truth for which all people have a God-given hunger. Accordingly, these bible studies can not only provide a time of good fellowship, but also equip the church with ways to reach the world beyond.Gilligan's Island and the Seven Deadly Sins can be used to reach adults, young people, non-church-members even to refresh the world weary souls of long time believers!
