Jesus spoke in parables so we could understand his wisdom and be able to relate.
He wanted his words and teachings to be written on our hearts without a debate.
He was a Master and a Teacher and wiser than Solomon who was blessed with wisdom. (1)
He spoke to those who could neither read nor write but had a desire for his kingdom.
He told the story of a farmer planting grain, comparing the heart of man and another farmer sowing good seed. (2)
But the enemy came along and tried to destroy the farmer’s wheat by also planting thistle weed. (3)
He taught principles of wineskins and garments of patches and thread. (4)
He compared “The Kingdom of Heaven” to pearls, and a woman making bread. (5)
His purpose was to invite the sinners to turn from sin and rebuke those who did not recognize his face. (6)
Read the story of the prodigal son and the parables of how rich men showed no compassion, pity or grace> (7)
Jesus was the only begotten Son of God, who freely gave up his life and dying on the cross was the price. (8)
Jesus was the only perfect man, the perfect redeemer, the perfect Lamb and the perfect sacrifice.
