The Next Two Sundays' Studies
June 9: "The Pharisee and the Tax Collector"
— Luke 18:9–14
Taught by Rob Sullivan: This parable is rich with spiritual truth. In fact, it contains the very essence of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Pharisee's prayer has no elements of confession; he does not ask forgiveness for his sins. The tax collector's prayer is the one God is waiting to hear; his attitude is exactly what God wants from all who come to Him.
June 16: "The Returning King and Ten Minas"
— Luke 19:11–27
Taught by Rob Sullivan: In response to speculation concerning the emergence of the kingdom of God, Jesus tells a parable about a human king who knows how to obtain and exercise power. Similar to yet different from the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14–30), the two parables shouldn't be considered the same or parallel.
