Module Description

In the Gospels, the activity most attributed to Jesus is that of teaching and his preferred method of teaching was to tell stories – parables. In this course, we are going to consider Jesus the storyteller and give time to reflecting on the stories he told, on how they were heard in his time and on how they might speak to today’s world.

Sean Goan, BA, BD, LSS is a Scripture scholar and retired teacher who has been involved in adult faith development for many years. He has also written commentaries on the Sunday readings and published The Sign: Reading the Gospel of John (2018).
