The gospels do not provide us with a full character sketch of Jesus. Rather they show Jesus in action. We must decipher what Jesus was like based on what he says and does. But there is one other way we can gain insight into Jesus' heart, mind, and imagination, and that is through the stories he told. In this sermon, we learn about how Jesus used stories to show us who we are, what God is like, and how we should respond to his movements towards us.
