Here are your 3 questions for this week. Jesus uses at lest 38 parables, we are not going to study all of them but I’d like to know which ones you’d like to cover. Please read the list following the questions and pic your top 5. I’ll ask each person to give their list on Wednesday night.

1. What can we learn for the Sowers scattering method?
2. Pew Research says that today only 14 percent of Americans live in rural counties, so most people have a more industrial view of life rather than agrarian ones. Are there differences in the ways these views shape our ideas of how people grow?
3. In verse 18 – 23, Jesus further explains different types of growth and life experienced by the seeds that are scattered. Do you think each type of seed that Jesus describes are genuine Christians? If so, how many are them are christians?
