Jesus told parables using the things that were all around Him and were familiar to the people to whom He was speaking. They lived in an agrarian economy, so He talked about the sheep and the goats, the wheat and the tares, the good soil and the bad, and the son who left his father’s farm and went off into a far country, and other unforgettable parables. 
Today, if there is anything Americans know well, it’s TV. There used to be a very popular program on called “The Millionaire.” Though it has now been off the air for many years, Dr. Kennedy took that theme, adapted it, taken some liberties, and used it to present a modern parable of Christmas.
