A parable is a story that illustrates a moral or lesson. Most of Jesus' teachings are in the form of parables. In fact, more than one-third of the Gospels contain parables that Jesus told. Learning these parables can help children find hope and understand the Kingdom of Heaven. However, children learn more through activities, which can make teaching the parables of Jesus more challenging. Using games can engage children and make learning more fun.
