Matthew 13:1-17: Parables and Their Purpose

Jesus often spoke in parables. Even many people who do not attend church regularly are familiar with some of His more famous parables – the prodigal son, the sower, or the shepherd and sheep. Yet, many would be surprised to know why Jesus taught in this form. Jesus gives the reason in this passage and it is not what is expected, but it was prophecies that He would do this. Join us to understand why Jesus spoke in parables and how that effects each of us.
