Truth Quest Update: Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus

Lazarus was saved by faith, but the rich man was consumed by his wealth. He devoted his life to living in luxury, and he did not love God or other people.

Truth Quest Update: Parable of the Wedding Feast

The parable of the wedding feast reminds us that we need to be clothed in Christ's righteousness. Jesus invites us to join Him in heaven - the great wedding feast. When we receive His invitation, Jesus gets us ready by clothing us in His righteousne...

Truth Quest Update: Parable of the Vineyard Workers

Like the vineyard owner and his wealth, God is free to share His grace as He desires. Does God act fairly in saving people who have not followed Him their entire lives? The reward - eternal life - is God’s grace to those who believe, whether they believe at the first or at the last. Jesus’ parable teaches about God’s grace. God is generous, and He loves us.
