Parables of Jesus

“Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.” Matthew 13:34-35 NIV

During His earthly ministry, as Jesus went about preaching and teaching, He frequently used parables. Jesus’ parables are stories with deep truths embedded. Jesus told approximately 46 parables. Most of the parables of Jesus are in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.
It is fun to discover Jesus’ lesson in each parable.
