Teaching Jesus’ Parables – Martin Weingaertner

Some years ago I was invited to preach in a pentecostal church in a slum neighbourhood.In this small congregation it was possible to engage the audience in an dialogue over the parable of the Fruitless Fig Tree (Luke 13.6-9). After the service three women came to me and said that they were delighted to discover that it is possible to understand and interpret the Bible in a similar way as they do whilst teaching literature.They explained that, up to this day, they thought Bible texts could only be applied, but not interpreted.
