Modern Parables is an original film-based Bible study series on Jesus’ parables. It uses short films combined with teaching by pastors and in-depth study materials to create an entirely new learning experience.
Modern Parables seeks to re-create the emotional immediacy that Jesus’ 1st-century audience felt when hearing the parables. It does this by using some of the best parable scholarship and exploring it through creative filmmaking. The gut-level understanding made possible by the films is intended to drive listeners into a deeper understanding of the Bible.

Each of these workbooks has fun word puzzles and writing activities that help children dig deeply into how God’s word applies to our daily lives. Younger children may need assistance reading the lessons, writing the verses, and completing the puzzles. Older children will be able to complete the lessons on their own, but parents are encouraged to oversee the study so that the children can gain wisdom from their parents as they look into the Word together.

Wild Tales: Wild Tales will continue your student’s journey through the skill development stage of spelling.

Students will also “chunk” the appropriate letter patterns indicated for that day’s lesson and will have opportunities for copywork, free writing, and writing from dictation throughout the week.
