Mark 4:33-34 ” With many similar parables Jesus spoke the Word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when He was alone with His own disciples, He explained everything.”

A parable is a narrative that compares spiritual things with natural things…making a deep impression on the attentive heart, while simultaneously concealing it from the worldly listener. Jesus used parables almost exclusively to explain spiritual truths, but for those who had already rejected Him, it was all utter foolishness & nonsense. Yet when Jesus & His disciples were off on their own, He would privately make clear & expound on what He had just taught the crowds…enabling His disciples to truly understand with enlightened minds. The Bible isn’t a book of darkness but rather the source of all light & truth, and it’s the Holy Spirit that illuminates the Scriptures for our benefit. The Holy Spirit helps us to hear, receive, and properly understand the true message of God’s Word as we read it…just as Jesus intimately did for His own.
