Jesus taught frequently in parables. The word “parable” comes from two Greek words, meaning to cast along the side. A parable is a story that is cast along the side of a truth. If you can see the point of the parable, you can see the spiritual truth. Or at least that is how they are supposed to work, but if a person has a hard heart, then he will not see the truth. Luke wrote,
And when a great multitude had gathered, and they had come to Him from every city, He spoke by a parable…
– Luke 8.4
For that method of teaching, great multitudes followed Jesus then and they still follow Him, even as you and I are today!
