Jesus used parables extensively in his teaching.Matthew, Mark and Luke record several of these parables. His masterful use of this method of
teaching is one of the reasons his hearers could truthfully say," No one ever spoke as this man."
A parable of Jesus is, more often than not, a gauntlet thrown down; a challenge. Always behind the challenge is Jesus' God a God bent on
the salvation of humankind-and Jesus' concern for the establishment of the reign of God.
Parables, indeed,challenge us and provide
us with deep insights into the
mind and heart of jesus.
