Parables Of Jesus

Introduction

The parables of Jesus present clear stories from everyday events that many in the crowd would recognise. Jesus didn’t speak in a secret language to prevent some people from understanding, since all equally would understand the imagery. All those who listened to Him certainly comprehended the aspects of the stories related to their everyday lives. His teaching divided the listeners into two groups based on their own responses.

The fig tree would produce fruit for 10 months of the year, April and May but this one had no fruit. It had leaves on it but produces fruit before leaves, there should have been fruit on that tree. But why one fig tree in a vineyard? Well, the fig tree got affection whilst the vineyard got attention. The Parable Of The Fig Tree

Jesus is encouraging His followers to pray for deliverance in times of persecution because God promises to act and bring judgement upon anyone who persecutes His children. We must trust that God will deal with them at the appropriate time.

As Christians we need to believe that in times of trouble, God is always longing to hear from us in order to answer our prayers and help us. The Parable Of The Persistent Widow

Self-righteousness is a problem which many people struggle with in one ways than one, sadly this also applies to some Christians, who start measuring their righteousness against others, they start measuring how many times they attend meetings comparing themselves with others, how much money they put in the offering, how well they know the Scriptures etc. The Parable Of The Pharisee And The Tax Collector

The manager is a symbol for the Pharisees, in this parable, Jesus is telling the Pharisees how they should behave, rather than just commenting on their behaviour.

The Pharisees refused to have anything to do with sinners. The Parable Of The Shrewd Manager
