“We wanted the modern retelling of each parable to help 21st century children connect with Jesus.”
21st Century Parables is a collection of the parables and teachings of Jesus in modern settings, written for use in readers’ theater format with no memorization required or as skits with simple scene changes and minimal props. The stories are created for leaders and teachers who have limited resources and teach a group of children with a wide range of skills.
These modern parables will connect with children where they are. Here are some examples:
It’s easy to get started. Pick from the 21 parables in the book. Spend some time reading the Bible reference and the Ellen G. White reference from Christ’s Object Lessons or The Desire of Ages. Then, easily adapt it to fit the needs of your group.
Children love being part of the presentation and the messages are clear for kids and adults in the audience!
