The Parables
Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ told numerous parables as recorded in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. According to the dictionary a parable is a story designed to teach a moral. Ah, but they are so much more. Depending upon the level of understanding a parable can be just a simple story or an elaborate display of God's love for us. As our understanding of God deepens so do new levels of understanding of his parables occur. The following parables are beautiful expressions of God's love for each and every one of us. Many of the parables in the book of Matthew are repeated in slightly different versions and recorded by other disciples - in Mark, Luke or John.
