For Christians what Kind of King was Jesus?

In this unit, pupils will find out about parables from the Bible and learn that most Christians believe that Jesus told some parables to share what the Kingdom of God is like and to invite people to join God’s kingdom by letting God rule in their hearts. Pupils will learn about different ways that Christians may interpret these texts, exploring how believers put their beliefs into practice in a variety of ways, including through worship and service to the community. Pupils will spend time discussing what the parables that Jesus told might mean for Christians today and how they may have an impact on how Christians live. Pupils will focus on the parable of the great banquet and the parable of the unforgiving servant. They will explore how some Christians interpret these parables as saying that people need to accept the invitation to God’s Kingdom and should not get distracted by the temptations of the world and that forgiveness and mercy is at the heart of what it is to live under God’s rule. Pupils will also find out about ways in which many Christians try to make the world more like God’s Kingdom by challenging unjust social structures in their local area and around the world.
