The Storyteller looks at the parables of Jesus as told in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. By comparing the parables in each gospel we may be able to conclude why the writers of the gospels selected to tell the identical story. Is there a diverse meaning for each one, or do they all communicate the same message. We can definitely tell that some of the parables had multiple meanings and some were surely intended for a specific audience. A parable can be over analyzed, however, knowing to whom they were written and why they were told is a compelling study. Dean Reding was raised in the Texas panhandle during the fifties where the winters make you wish for summer and the summers make you wish for winter. He received a firm foundation in the Word under Reverend Mack A McCoy. He continued to study to show himself approved through three years at Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth and two years in the masters program at California State University at Long Beach. Since retirement from a major oil company he has been researching and writing this study of the Parables of Jesus as well as other books and poems.
