Our God is a God of Story. Jesus talked mainly in parables to the crowds. As a matter of fact in Matthew 13:34 it says, “Jesus spoke all these thing in parables to the crowds; he did not speak to them without a parable.” Wow! Think about that! Jesus didn’t preach to the crowds, he told them stories.  Today these parables would probably be a Skit, Drama, Play, Movie or video on the internet! 


Telling stories is one of the most effective ways to share truth. Jesus told stories of everyday things to share the truth of God. He rarely if ever even mentioned God in His stories – He simply shared the truths of life in everyday events so that Gods truth could be revealed. He knew that those who had ears to hear, would hear.


You can learn how to share stories of truth! Classes offered world-wide through the University of the Nations College of Arts and Sports offer ways you can learn the principles and skills and gain the abilities to share the truths of God through everyday stories.
