The Parables of Jesus

An All-Time Classic 

by J. Dwight Pentecost

Jesus’ use of figures of speech, proverbs, and stories shows the simplicity, depth of insight, and sublimity of thought that only a master teacher can express. But the parables of Jesus are more than just great literature. As the author observes, “It is often overlooked that the primary purpose of the parables was to instruct those to whom the parables were originally spoken.” In fact, almost one third of Christ’s teachings in the Gospels is given in the form of parables. 

In order to properly interpret the parables, the author describes the context in which each parable was spoken and the background against which it was delivered. He then explains the problem or question that each parable addresses and the solution it contains. Some of the over forty parables discussed include:

The Physician

The Blind Guides

Children in the Marketplace

The Wise and Foolish Builder

The Mustard Seed

The Persistent Widow

The Ten Minas

The Sheep and the Goats

The Two Debtors

The Empty House

Parables Proving the Person of Christ

The Two Sons

The Wedding Banquet

The Ten Virgins

The Talents

The Sheep and the Goats

The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

The Wicked Servant

The Good Samaritan

The Rich Man and the Beggar

The Laborers in the Vineyard and many more.
