At Catalyst I’ll be starting a series called “Stories Jesus Told,” which will put some parables in the Bible under the microscope. I’m going to start with a parable in Matthew 13…one that caused the disciples to ask “Why parables?”
Jesus’ response is a little troubling. It was as if the truth of his message was supposed to be vague, mysterious, and difficult to interpret. Why? Doesn’t God love all of us and want us to understand what he was trying to say? Why would he run the risk of people misunderstanding if his words were indeed the most important stuff people would ever hear?
