Parables of the Beloved - Book Product Description:
“He spoke many things to them in parables” (Matthew 13:3).
Book five in our series on the life and ministry of Jesus
examines His parables, other than parables of the kingdom
which were included in book four, The Kingdom of the Beloved.
Parables are pictures painted with words,
the veiling of truth in a way that opens truth
to the joyful heart of the seeker.
Jesus veiled truth in stories about lost coins
and prodigal sons and new wine so that those who love truth
would discover truth with greater clarity.
Parables also veil the truth to those who despise truth.
Unable to see through the veils, they fail to obtain
the truth which they have already despised.
Parables, then, reveal the heart of the listener.
Those who prefer darkness will see no light.
Those who love light find a passageway of light.
