Jesus Used Videos

You are right, he didn't really use a visual medium for his followers, but he did use the concept of video stories. Jesus told over 30 parables in the New Testament alone. This is not counting the Old Testament, which in itself is one big story. Just think of all the wonderful bible stories such as; Noah, Moses, David, Jonah, and Joseph, just to name a few. These are stories that have impacted and ultimately changed the way we see our world. Stories draw us in and take us into another dimension. For example: a man is walking down a concrete sidewalk in a neighborhood. It's a sunny day, and he can hear the wind rustling in the trees. He hears kids playing, and someone mowing their lawn. He nods and smiles as he walks past a lady running the opposite direction.
STOP! Where were your thoughts? Were you walking down the street with this man? Did you change your camera view of him? Did you hear the sounds of the wind, kids playing, and a lawn mower running? Most likely, as soon as I started the story, a film reel began to play in your head. Is this by coincidence that our brain automatically starts to play a film reel, instead of text? I believe our Creator has built us to be visual people. That is why Jesus used and told so many parables.
