Most of Jesus' ministry takes place in the countryside of Galilee. He visits farms, small towns, industrial sites, and travels miles from place to place. His ministry setting is very similar to the landscapes of our country churches. The parables and miracles are short stories and community events that help the rural people of the Roman Empire see themselves as more than the forgotten and the abused in the boondocks. These scriptures can offer a similar salvation to the people of rural communities today. Especially when we read them as country people with country ways of talking, connecting, and making do.
