"The Parables of Jesus"

Parables of Jesus

The Parables in the Bible were stories used by Jesus to illuminate the great truths and lessons He taught.

This was His most common way of teaching. Each one has a central theme that unveils a timeless, often hidden meaning, or point. Of the four Gospels, only John does not contain a parable by Jesus.

Jesus was teaching a very different message than the people of His day had ever heard, and He was using these short and simple stories like a skillful artist to illuminate these wonderful new principles.

He sometimes used them for comparison, such as, "The Kingdom of God is like a mustard seed..." (Luke 13:19).  Another story illustrates His mission on earth, and offers a glimpse into His very nature, by comparing Himself to a Sheppard who was in charge of 100 sheep. Though ninety-nine were safe, he risked his life to find the one that was lost. (Matt 18:12-14)

Often called, "Word Pictures," Jesus used these masterful illustrations in ways the people were familiar with, such as mustard seeds, fig trees, wineskins, and oil lamps.

Below are links to a few of these wonderful sermons of Jesus, (and we will be adding more with commentary). They are for our understanding, not only into what He expects of us, but of whom He is, and what it will be like to spend a glorious eternity with Him.


                              "Parables of Jesus"

Lamp Under a Bowl: "It can sometimes be uncomfortable to allow your light to glow in the midst of the world's darkness; yet as the moon reflects the light of the sun, so are we to reflect the light of Jesus..."

Fishermans Net:  "The fishing net is about the Judgment Seat of Christ at the end times. It is for all people, but Jesus was delivering it directly to the scribes..."

Unshrunk Cloth: (Scripture only) - "No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one...."

The Sower Sows the Word: (Scripture only) - "A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path..."

The Mustard Seed: (Scripture only) - "The mustard seed is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree,"

Parables of Jesus


"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!
