1. When a manager faces imminent termination by his wealthy master for mishandling his wealth, what will he do? Where can he turn? In this challenging parable, Jesus teaches us that our salvation lies outside of ourselves and our works.
  2. When anything other than the gospel of Christ crucified for sinners becomes the center of the parables, we exchange the Gospel for the law.
  3. We sinners share a common problem when it comes to Jesus’ parables. We read them with an eye to our own righteousness.
