Friday: Further Study: Discipling Through Metaphor — 2 Comments

  1. I'm surprised that the lesson refers to the story of the Good Samaritan
    as "fiction":

    Read Luke 16:19-31. What kind of story did Jesus use there? What lessons can we take from it about the use of fiction in the conveying of spiritual messages?

    According to Ellen White, this was a TRUE story:

    Again Christ refused to be drawn into controversy. He answered the question by relating an incident, the memory of which was fresh in the minds of His hearers. “A certain man,” He said, “went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.” {COL 379.1}

    • Brother Ray,
      Happy Sabbath! Not sure you had the right scripture reference, but it is noble to check out the statements made by others, including in the quarterly. Keep studying.
