The Parables of Jesus

In the month of December, we will focus on the teachings of Jesus and his messages to the world. We will explore the book of Matthew and hear His word straight from his mouth. Jesus is wisdom and His word is life. This 10 day plan will guide us in understanding life’s difficult decisions, teach us the significance in forgiveness and show us we must trust in The Lord with all of our heart, mind and soul. Enjoy ❤

When the disciples asked Jesus, why do you used parables when you talk to people? Jesus replied “You are permitted to understand the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven, but others are not. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. That is why I use these parables, for they look, but the don’t really see. They heave, but they don’t really listen or understand” –Matthew 13:10-13

So, why does Jesus Speak in Parables? Jesus always used stories and illustrations like these when speaking to the crowds. In face, he never spoke to them without using such parables. This fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet: “I will speak to you in parables. I will explain things hidden since the creation of the world” – Matthew 13:34-35
