The parables give us invaluable insight into what I call the Irresistible Kingdom of God. Concealing the truth within the context of a parable was necessary, Jesus said, because “To you [the disciples] it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to the rest it is given in parables.” Those who want to understand the mysteries of the Kingdom have to have a relationship with the King. The mysteries of the Kingdom are reserved, not for passive listeners, but for true followers.
We’ll also talk about the “code” Jesus uses to link many different teachings together so you can interpret them correctly and apply them to your life.
