Parable 1
Throughout the Bible you’ll discover many parables that tell a simple story of how Jesus illustrates moral and spiritual lessons. Parables give one or more instructional lessons or principles that can be an allegory. Parables also hold key words from Jesus’ readings that are meant to grasp people’s attention and making sure they are hearing what is said. Jesus wants the listeners to focus on what is being said so that they will understand what He is teaching them. For example, “He who has ears” is a saying that is worded differently so that the reader’s attention is grasped. It has been said that a parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning because of the hidden key words implemented in the text. Jesus frequently used parables as a way to illustrate profound and divine truths. Readers can break down parables and vigorously study them to better understand Jesus’ way of teaching, but mainly in order to be able to connect to Him through them. The disciples noticed the change in Jesus’ teaching and asked why he told a parable. In response Jesus said “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it has not been granted” (Mathew 13:11). Its weird to think Jesus would leave people in question. Jesus would explain to the disciples that those who have, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him. This was a common teaching in Judaism.
