THE PARABLES OF JESUS

All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.” Mat 13:34-35

Everyone knows that Jesus was a wonderful story teller. He seemed to always have the perfect story at just the right moment. Sometimes his stories were rude and down right offensive. Other times his stories were confusing and complex. And then sometimes his stories were so off the wall they would literally blow every circuit in your brain. Those closest to Jesus tell us that he used parables to communicated secrets and mysteries. It was said that he said nothing to them without speaking in a parable.

The structure of this series and most of the fabulous quotes are taken from Robert Capon’s book “Kingdom, Grace, Judgment: Paradox, Outrage, and Vindication in the Parables of Jesus.”
