Speaker: Gavin Paynter
Date: 7 October 2007
Topic Groups: KINGDOM OF GOD, PROPHECY, PARABLES
Sermon synopsis: Jesus taught 7 consecutive parables in Matthew 13 about the kingdom. The parables, if understood, reveal the secrets of “the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 13:10-11). The 7 parables refer to 7 church ages. The first parable of 'The Sower' covers the period from approximately 30 - 100 AD or the 'Apostolic Church'.
