Jesus Teaches In Parables

Jesus the great teacher ever known in the history of mankind, teach in parable in the Mount! As he teach, he teach not only his disciples but teach everyone who was available including a lawyer but he teach in parables and at the end of the parables he would then translate and illustrate the meaning. Below are the teachings in parables.
1. The Sower: Matt. 13:1-23; Mark 4:1-20, Luke 8:4-8
Jesus told his hearers this parable: A sower went out to sow some seeds, some of the seeds fell by the way side, and not quite long the birds ate the seeds up. Some fell on rocky ground. They grew but died later because there was little soil. Others fell at the side of the field, where there were weeds and thorns. These, too began to grow, but they were soon killed by the weeds and thorns. The rest of the seeds fell on good soil. They grew very well and produced many fruits (seeds).
     The disciples did not know what lesson Jesus was trying to teach them. They asked Jesus to tell them what the story meant. This is what Jesus told them.
a. The seed is the word of God
b. The soil is the people who hears it.
c. Some people are like the path; they hear God's words but do nothing about it.
d. Some people are like the Rocky, shallow soil; they hear God's word and believe it for a time, but very soon they forget all about it.
e. The soil full of weeds and thorns is like the people who hears God's word and for a time try to do what is right, but after a time the word of God is choked by other things like money and worry.
f. The good ground is like the people who hears the word of God and then do what God tells them to do. Just as the corn grows and ripens, so they live good lives and help others to the same.

2. The Mustard Seed:
Matthew 13:24-32; Luke 13:18-19; Mark 4:30-32.
In this parable, Jesus said that the kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed, which when it is sown in the earth is less than all the seeds that be in the earth. But when it is sown, it growth up and become the greater than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches, so that fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.
Jesus illustrated in this parable the small beginning of his ministry on Earth and it great results. The blessings of the Gospel of Jesus will grow and spread to people everywhere they might be.

3. The Wheat and The Tares:
Matthew 13:24-30; 36-43.
 Jesus says that the kingdom of heaven is like the farm of a man where he sowed good seed. In the night his enemies went and sowed tares. The two grew up together. The servants of the man told him that unknown persons (enemy) sowed tares in his farm and insisted that they would like to remove the tares but the master said that they should allow both the wheat and the tares to grow until the time of harvest. By the time of harvest, the grains would be gathered together and the tare would be burnt. Jesus by this parable, warns the unbelievers about what will be their fate on the judgement day.

4. The Seed Growing Secretly: Mark 4:26-29
Jesus says that the kingdom of God is like a man planting some seeds and the seeds will germinate and grow up but the man cannot tell how this is done or how this seed is growing. Later the time of harvest would come. Jesus is saying that when the gospel is preached, conversion of the people who hear the word of God belongs to God.

5. PARABLES ILLUSTRATING GOD'S LOVE
(I) The Lost Sheep: Matt. 18:12-14; Luke 15:3-7
The Pharisees and Scribes murmured when they saw that Jesus received sinners and ate with them. Jesus then told them the parable of the lost sheep. Jesus said that a man had one hundred sheep and one of them was lost. The man went to look for the lost sheep and at last he found it. When he found it, be carried the sheep on his shoulders, rejoicing. When he got home he call his friends and neighbors to rejoice with him because he had found his lost sheep. Jesus concluded by saying that there will be Joy in heaven over one sinner that would repent more than ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance .

(II) The Lost Coin: Luke 15:3-10.
 Jesus told the people another parable to illustrate God's love. The parable is the lost coin. Jesus said that a certain woman had ten pieces of coins. One of the coins got lost. She lighted a candle and swept her house looking for it. When she found it, she happily called her friends and neighbors to rejoice with her because she had found the coin which she had lost.
   Jesus concluded the story by saying that there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that would repent.

(III) The Prodigal Son: Luke 15:11-32
A man had two sons. One day, the younger son said to his father to divide the property between the two sons. The father did so. This younger son went off to another land where he wasted his money by living in careless life. When the money was finished, he had to rear pigs for a farmer in order to eat.
Later, he became very sorry for the careless way he was living his life and decided to go back to his father. His father ran to him when he saw him coming home. The father was very happy to see him. He gave him good cloths, rings and shoes. He killed a fat cow and made a big feast saying that his son who was lost had been found. This parable stresses the fact that there will be joy in heaven over a sinner who repents.

6. PARABLES ILLUSTRATING CONCERN FOR ONE ANOTHER

a. The Good Samaritan: Luke 10:25-37
A lawyer once met Jesus and asked him what he must do to get to heaven, "what does the law say"? Asked Jesus. The lawyer replied that "You must love God and you must love your neighbor". "That is right", said Jesus. "That is what you must do if you want to get to heaven". The lawyer asked, "who is my neighbor"? Jesus then told him this story.
      A man was going from Jerusalem to Jericho when he was attacked by robbers and he was left half dead. Not quite long a priest came along the road. When he came to the place where the man lay he looked at him and went away.

            Then a levite came and did as the priest did. At last a samaritan came to the spot where the man was (The Samaritan were not Jews and the Jews and the Samaritans hated one another). The Samaritan went up to the man and tended his wounds with wine and oil. He put him on his ass and took him to an inn. He gave the innkeeper some money to take care of the wounded man, and told him that if if cost more he would pay him when he came again. After Jesus had told this story, he asked the lawyer who was the neighbor of the man who was attacked by the robbers. The lawyer replied that it was the man who helped the wounded man. Jesus told him to go and do the same.

b. The Rich man (Dives) And Lazarus Luke 1:19-31
 The story of the rich man and Lazarus is often called Dives and Lazarus. The word Dives (Pronounced Die-vees) is a Latin word which means 'the rich man'.
There was once a rich man. At his gate sat a beggar named Lazarus, dirty and covered with sores. He begged for little pieces of food which fell down from the rich man's table. The rich man refused but ordered his dog to lick the sores on the legs of Lazarus. At last, the two men died. The beggar went to heaven and the rich man to hell. The rich man cried out to Abraham, whom he could see with Lazarus in Heaven. The rich man asked Abraham to send Lazarus to drop water to his tongue to cool it. Abraham told him that while he was alive he had all the good things while Lazarus was poor and ill. The rich man then requested him to send Lazarus to go to warn his five brothers to change their ways so that they would not join him there. Abraham refused and said that they must learn from the words of prophets, the men of God and they can escape his punishment.
      In this story, Jesus showed that we must do good with our riche before it is too late.

Unilag Set Up Taskforce To Curb Sexual Harassment

The Lagos State University (Unilag) Registrar for Communication, Mrs Taiwo Oloyede, said in a statement that the move“is in continuation of the institution’s unrelenting campaign against the menace of sexual harassment and other forms of inappropriate behaviours.

The institution recently suspended two senior lecturers exposed in alleged sexual harassment in a BBC investigative documentary video, ‘African Eye’.

The documentary also exposed some lecturers of the University of Ghana, Legon.

“The task force has the mandate to examine the extant University of Lagos policy on sexual harassment, receive complaints from faculties, departments and other units concerning matters that border on sexual harassment.

It is to also receive oral and written testimonies from staff and students involved in cases of sexual harassment and recommend appropriate sanction for offenders.

“The task force, in addition to other functions, will put forward counselling and other therapies for mitigating the adverse effects of sexual harassment on victims and carry out other duties aimed at eradicating the ugly trend from the institution,’’ the statement read in part.

The task force is expected to send monthly reports of its activities to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe.

Oloyede reiterated the institution’s commitment to stamping out the menace of sexual harassment and related offences from its campuses.

She noted that the university “would spare no effort in ensuring that it remained a foremost citadel of learning and promoting excellence in character’’.

Abstain From AAU Convocation NANS Tells Feyemi

The National Association of Nigerian Students wish to advise the Ekiti State Governor, Dr John Kayode Fayemi to in the interest of justice, recuse himself from the convocation lecture he plans to deliver tomorrow at the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State.

The entire public would recall that in September, 2019, the wife of the governor while on political tour of local governments within Ekiti State caused the death of two promising undergraduates at Federal University, Oye-Ekiti.

Erelu Bisi Fayemi's orderlies mainly from the Counter Terrorism Unit of the Nigeria Police Force had in a broad daylight barbarism, shot at harmless students killing two and injuring many..
Till date, the Ekiti State first family had done everything humanly possible to cover up the sad incident.

One of the slain students, Joseph Okonofua hails from Edo state where Governor Kayode Fayemi is billed to address a convocation lecture.

We maintain our earlier ban placed on the first family of Ekiti state not to visit or attend any program or engage in any activity on Nigerian campuses. It is a strong warning that this leadership will not compromise until justice is done on the #FuoyeKilling.

NANS will not sit idly watching those who sacrifice the blood of Nigerian students for transient power sustainability to further insult the sensibilities of our colleagues.
That Governor Kayode Fayemi is known for arrogance of power and mindless blood letting is enough for him and his family to stay away from our campuses.

The Ekiti State Governor would do well not to dare the resolve of Nigerian students by coming to AAU, Ekpoma as students within and outside Edo state are fully mobilized to stop the sacrilege Fayemi is about to perform.

No Nigerian, however powerful should take the life of another and still roam the nation in search of goodwill when his cloth is soaked with innocent citizens blood.
What impactful lecture will Governor Kayode Fayemi who is unfeeling, uncaring and mafioso in nature deliver in an academic environment?
Should we wait after his exit from Ekpoma to begin to count numbers again?
The deaths around Kayode Fayemi is enough for any of us to become wary of his unsuspecting solicitation for sacrifices.

The management and senate of AAU, Ekpoma should find, immediately, a suitable replacement for Governor Kayode Fayemi as NANS would resist his entrance and stop him from killing more students whose blood he satisfactorily  donate to his oracles in renewal of earthly powers. We insist that we can no longer accept loss of students.

The leadership of NANS hereby directs immediate mobilization for the stoppage of Governor John Kayode Fayemi whose wife superintended over the killing of Joseph Okonofua and Kehinde Dada.

Should the Governor remain adamant, he should prepare more of his CTU officers so as to stroll on the blood of Nigerian students whose lives he cherishes for  his blood consuming deities.
AAU, Ekpoma is certainly the best place to ask pertinent questions as to why Fayemi's wife is licensed to kill people's children, cover up the killings with her privileged status and for Nigerian students to ensure the long awaited justice.

A Raisin In The Sun by Lorraine Hansberry

A Raisin the sun is a play by Lorraine Hansberry that debuted on broadway in 1959. The title comes from the poem "Harlem" (also known as "A Dream Deferred") by Langston Hughes. The story is based upon a black family's experiences in the Washington Park Subdivision of Chicago's Woodlawns neighborhood.
Walter and Ruth Younger and their son Travis, along with Walter's mother Lena (Mama) and sister Beneatha, live in poverty in a dilapidated two-bedroom apartment on Chicago's South side. Walter is barely making a living as a limousine driver. Though Ruth is content with their lot, Walter is not and desperately wishes to become wealthy, to which end he plans to invest in a liquor store in partnership with Willy, a street-smart acquaintance of Walter's whom we never meet. At the beginning of the play, Mama is waiting for an Insurance check for ten thousand dollars. Walter has a sense of entitlement to the money, but Mama has religious objections yo alcohol and Beneatha has to remind him it is Mama's call how to spend it. Eventually Mama put some of the money down a new house, choosing an all-white neighborhood over a black one for the practical reason that it happens to be much cheaper. Later she relent L's and gives the rest money to Walter to invest with the provision that he reserves $3,000 for Beneatha's education. Walter passes the money on to Willy's naive sidekick Bobo, who gives it to Willy, who absconds with it depriving Walter and Beneatha of their dreams, though not the Youngers of their new home. Meanwhile, Karl Lindner, a white representative of the neighborhood they plan to move to, makes a generous offer to buy them out.

He wishes to avoid neighborhood tension over interracial population, which to the three women's horror Walter prepares to accept as a solution to their financial setback. Lena says that while money was something they try to work for, they should never take it if it was a person's way of telling them they were not fit to walk the same earth as them.

While all these is going on, Walter's character and direction in life are being defined for us by two different men: Beneatha's wealthy and educated boyfriend George Murchison, and Joseph Asagai. Neither man is actively involved in the Youngers financial ups and downs. George represents the "fully assimilated black man" who denies his African heritage with a "smarter than thou" attitude, which Beneatha finds disgusting. While dismissively mocking Walter's lack of money and education. Asagai patiently teaches Beneatha about her about her African heritage; he gives her thoughtfully useful gifts from Africa, while pointing out she is unwittingly assimilating herself into white ways. She straightens her hair, for example, which he characterizes as "mutilation".
A Raisin in the sun by Lorraine Hansberry - edulect.org

When Beneatha becomes distraught at the loss of the money, she is upbraided by Joseph for materialism. She eventually accepts his point of view that things will get better with a lot of effort, along with his proposal of marriage and his invitation to move with him to Nigeria to practice medicine.

Walter is oblivious to the stark contest between George and Joseph: his pursuit of wealth can only be attained by liberating himself from Joseph's culture, to which he attributes his poverty, and rising to George level, wherein he sees salvation.

THEMES IN A RAISIN IN THE SUN 
The play remains a potent touchstone, still speaking to viewers about race, gender roles, family, hope and desperation, capitalism, the American dream, the problem of housing discrimination, how the social, educational, economical and political climate of the 1950s affected African Americans' quest for "The American Dream".

  Lorraine Hansberry (1930-1965) analyzes Northern racism and it cruel effects in her play A Raising in the Sun, which she claims is "specifically [about] Southside Chicago" (Hansberry. YGB 114).

Many social issues including feminism, gender roles, the Black family, and the pan-African movement, as well as events within Hansberry's own life, are interweaved in this play. However, a central theme of A Raisin in the Sun reveals how racism from the housing industry, government, religious leaders, and average Americans supported the segregated housing environment of Chicago...

(I) Gender: WALTER... See there, that just goes to show you what women understand about the world. Baby, don't nothing happen for you in this world 'less you pay somebody off! (1.1.81)

(j) Choices: RUTH (Beaten) Yes I would too, Walter. (Pause) I gave her a five-dollar down payment. (1.2.237)

(k) Sacrifice: WALTER I don't want nothing but for you to stop acting holy 'round here. Me and Ruth done made some sacrifices for you – why can't you do something for the family? (1.1.118)

CHARACTERS IN A RAISIN IN THE SUN BY LORRAINE HENSBERRY

Walter: As Mama's only son, Ruth's defiant husband, Travis's caring father, and Beneatha's belligerent brother, Walter serves as both protagonist and antagonist of the play. The plot revolves around him and the actions that he takes, and his character evolves the most during the course of the play. Most of his actions and mistakes hurt the family greatly, but his belated rise to man hood makes a sort of hero in the last scene. Throughout the play, Walter provides an everyman perspective of the mod-twentieth-century African-American male. He is the typical man of the family who struggles to support it and who tries to discover new, better schemes to secure it economic prosperity. Difficulties and barriers that obstruct his and his family's progress to attain that prosperity constantly frustrate Walter. He believes that money will solve all of their problems, but he is rarely successful with money.

Walter often fights and argue with Ruth, Mama, and Beneatha. Far from being a good listener, he does not seems to understand that he must pay attention to his family members concerns in order to help them. Eventually, he realize that he cannot raise the family up from the poverty alone, and he seeks strength in uniting with his family. Once he begins to listen to Mama and Ruth express their dreams of owning a house, he realizes that buying the house is more important for the family's welfare than getting rich quickly. Walter finally becomes a man when he stands up to Mr. Lindner and refuses the money that Mr. Lindner offers the family not to move in to its dream house in a white neighborhood.
Mama: Mama is Walter and Beneatha's sensitive mother and the head of the younger household. She demands that members of her family respect themselves and take pride in their dreams. Mama require that the apartment in which they live always be neat and polished. She stands up for her belief and provides perspective from an older generation. She believes in striving to succeed while maintaining her moral boundaries; she rejects Beneatha progressive and seemingly un-christian sentiment about God, and Ruth's consideration of an abortion disappoint her. Similarly, when walter comes to her with his idea to invest in the liquor store venture, she condemn the idea and explains that she'll not participate in such un-christian business. Money is only a means to an end for Mama; dreams are more important to her than material wealth, and her dream is to own a house with a garden and yard which Travis can play.

Asagai: One of Beneatha fellow students and one of her suitors, Asagai is from Nigeria, and throughout the ply he provides an international perspective. Proud of his African heritage, he hopes to return to Nigeria to bring about positive change and modern advancement. He tries to teach Beneatha about her heritage as well. He stands in obvious contrast to Beneatha other suitor, George Murchison, who is an arrogant African-American who has succeeded in life by assimilating to the white world.
