Jesus Tells Three Parables


Chapter 35
Two of the Savior’s parables are printed here. Look for the third parable in next month’s issue of the Friend.
Jesus eating with sinners

One day Jesus was eating and talking with some sinners. Some Pharisees saw Him. Luke 15:1–2

Pharisees angry

The Pharisees thought that they were good men and that good men should not talk to sinners. They thought that Jesus should not talk to sinners. Luke 15:2

Parable of the lost sheep

The Savior wanted to teach the Pharisees that they were wrong. To help them understand why He was with the sinners, He told them three parables. The first one was about a lost sheep. Luke 15:3; Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, page 277
