Yeshua/Jesus often spoke in Parables. A parable is a story told that has hidden value of wisdom, the story on the surface has a lesson in it, but the deeper Truths are concealed so that only people “in the know” can extract the full value of the intended meaning. I have had many people say to me, “The Word of God is simple, it says what it means and means what it says, I don’t need to treat the Bible like it is some encrypted secret code, Jesus made it simple so even a child can understand it”. Let’s hear what the Messiah says on the issue.
Mat 13:10 Then the disciples came and said to Jesus, “Why do you speak to people in parables?”
Mat 13:11 He answered them, “You have been given knowledge about the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but it hasn’t been given to them.
Mat 13:12 For to anyone who has something, more will be given, and he will have more than enough. But from the one who doesn’t have anything, even what he has will be taken away from him.
Mat 13:13 That’s why I speak to them in parables, because ‘they look but don’t see, and they listen but don’t hear or understand.’
