This lesson was originally published during the time of Ellen White and the pioneers in the year 1901 and it take us through a study on the parables of Christ. It consists of questions and Bible answers, which makes it an ideal Sabbath School study guide. The lessons have been redesigned into a convenient booklet format with easy to read fonts and a pleasant design.
ln the preparation of these lessons all Scripture references, and the pages of “Christ’s Object Lessons,” should be thoroughly studied first, then the questions. The questions are not the lessons. They are only for the purpose of finding out what we have observed while studying. More of the preciousness of these lessons will be obtained if the lesson is studied each day throughout the week. In the parables of Jesus there is salvation from sin for every type of sinner-from the Pharisee to the prodigal.
“Our Sabbath-schools are nothing less than Bible societies, and in the sacred work of teaching the truths of God’s Word, they can accomplish far more than they have hitherto accomplished. The Sabbath-school, when rightly managed, possesses marvelous power, and is adapted to doing a great work, but it is not now what it may and should be. The influence growing out of Sabbath-school work should improve and enlarge the church; but in no case should it ever be allowed to divert from the interests of the church. There is a most precious missionary field in the Sabbath-school, and if there are now omens of good, they are only indications and beginnings of what may be done.” TSS 29.1
