Jesus' use of figure of speech, proverbs, and stories shows the simplicity, depth of insight, and sublimity of thought that only a master teacher can express. But the parables of Jesus are more than just great literature. As the author observes, "It is often overlooked that the primary purpose of the parables was to instruct those to whom the parables were originally spoken." In fact, almost one-third of Christ's teachings in the Gospels is given in the form of the parables.In order to properly interpret the parables, the author describes the context in which each parable was spoken and the background against which it was delivered. He then explains the problem or question that each parable addresses and the solution it contains. Some of the over forty parables discussed include:The Wise and Foolish Builder (Matt. 7:24-29; Luke 6:43-49)The Mustard Seed (Matt. 13:31-32)The Persistent Widow (Luke 18:1-8)The Ten Minas (Luke 19:11-27)The Sheep and the Goats (Matt. 25:31-46)
