Parables of the Kingdom
  • Parable- a story that teaches a moral or

    events and objects to explain important truths.

    and loce, initiated on earth by Jesus and
    reaching perfect fulfillment at the end of time.

  • A net thrown into the sea.
  • A tiny mustard seed.
  • A burried treasure.
  • A merchant searching for fine pearls.

    Only at the end of time will it be fully
    realized.
  • Christ will come to judge how well we have served
    God and others.
  • Those who follow Christ will enjoy everlasting
    happiness.

    to treat others with love, compassion, and mercy.
  • As members of the Body of Christ, we are united
    to each otherwe all work together to bring about
    the kingdom.

  • As a sign of his love, he made a covenant with
    Noah and his decendents, then with Abraham and
    his decendents.
  • Through Gods covenant with Moses, God revield
    his law (the 10 Commandments).
  • The covenant was fulfilled when God sent Jesus,
    who saved us from our sins.

  • Marriage and the priesthood are ways we can live
    out our vocations.
  • Holy orders allows a man to serve as a disciple,
    or follower of Christ.
  • Men and women can also live out their vocations
    as Christs disciples through the sacrament of
    Matrimony.

A Loving Commitment
  • In Marriage, a man and a woman make a lifelong
    commitment to love and respect one another.
  • To be joined together in the presence of Christ,
    the man and woman must freely choose to marry,
    promise to be faithful to each other, and to
    raise their children in a caring Christian
    environment.

Holy Orders
  • The Twelve were commissioned by Jesus to preach
    the Gospel and to bring Gods healing touch to
    others.
  • Men are called to lead and serve in the Church as
    decons, priests, and bishops.
  • Without Holy Orders, the church as we know it
    could not exist.

    other pope.
