List of Jesus Parables

  List of Jesus Parables

Is there a list of Jesus' parables?

A list of Jesus' parables would include many of the accounts He told to His disciples and listeners. A parable is a fictional illustration, often comparing a spiritual truth with an object. Parables were a common way of teaching in Judaism, so the people of that time were familiar with their use. Jesus used parables to keep certain truth hidden from the listeners who cared more about entertainment than they did about learning about who Jesus was. Those who understood Jesusí purpose, could discern the truth behind Jesusí parables. This means that not everyone understood Jesusí message through these parables.
