Pastor-teacher John MacArthur helps readers understand Jesus parables and how they relate to the whole of His messagenow in paperback.
Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so His people might comprehend His message about the kingdom of God clearly.
In this book, expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur deftly explains how
- a parable is an ingeniously simple word picture illuminating a profound spiritual lesson;
- even the most detailed parables usually teach fairly straightforward, uncomplicated lessons; and
- in those cases where symbolism is more complex, Jesus almost always explains the symbolism for us.
MacArthur has spent a lifetime explaining the Word of God in clear and comprehensible terms. In Parables, he helps Christians understand the essential lessons contained in the most famous and influential short stories the world has ever known.
