Exploring Good Vs Bad Choices

How to identify a parable that Jesus told

So, here are a few tips to guide you on how to identify a parable .

1. Understand the nature of the parables.
Parables are tools to compare something physical to something spiritual (Halloran, 2013).

2. Understand the purpose of parables.
Jesus taught with parables for two main purposes: to explain truth to some (see Luke 10:36-37) and to keep truth hidden from others (see Mark 4:10-12 below)(Halloran, 2013).

3. See the parable in its proper context.
Often times a parable has a brief introduction that will greatly affect its meaning and interpretation(Halloran, 2013).
