Session 4- RE - Learning Question- What is a parable?

Remember, this term we are looking at stories from the Bible. Some stories from the Bible are called parables.  A parable is a special story Jesus told that teaches Christians about God.

Today’s Parable is The Lost Sheep. Click here to watch the story. Can you retell the story to your grown up?


Have you ever been lost like the sheep? How did you feel? Were you scared? or worried? or frightened?  Christians believe that those feelings can come when they feel ‘lost’ from God. It’s a bit like people being the sheep and God being like the shepherd who looks after them. Jesus was teaching the people that however lost they feel,  God would keep looking for them.


God loves everyone even if they have done things wrong like Zacchaeus. Zacchaeus was a bit like a lost sheep too because he was going the wrong way in his life.
