Question


Why did Jesus speak in parables? Here's a picture of "Bessie" our Holstein heifer contemplating our beautiful sunset.

I believe one reason Jesus spoke in parables is the same reason that we tell stories today to illustrate a point. He was communicating deep spiritual truths through simple but vivid and illustrative stories. Stories that ordinary people could relate to and understand but that in some cases had deeper spiritual meaning for the scribes and Pharisees who knew the prophesies of the Messiah. He was in some cases speaking to those prophesies but the ones whose hearts were hardened and needed to hear him the most, often had no ears to hear him...same as today!
