Jan. 29, 2016 (Mark 4:26-34)

“With many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to understand.” Jesus presented great mysteries and concepts that were often new to His hearers. You might think of a parable as telling a joke and leaving the punch line out. In other words, Jesus wanted His audience to ponder what the meaning(s) of His parable might be. This method of teaching engages the audience directly into the material. That’s why there may be several perfectly valid meanings to the same parable!
