Parables for Pharisees

Luke 15:1-10 — “The Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.” This sermon covers the Parable of the Lost Sheep and the Parable of the Lost Coin. We are careful to think about these familiar stories in their context because we want to know what Jesus was getting at. When we realise what Jesus was saying to the Pharisees and the scribes, we discover a powerful message for our Christian lives.  None of us want to find ourselves out-of-alignment with God’s heart for a lost and dying world.
