Matthew 13: Problems in Parables

Matthew 13 introduces us to Jesus’ first use of parables as narrative teaching.  The word “parable” is a transliterative form of the Greek paraballo, a compound word joining para(beside) with ballo(to throw).

Matthew 12: Condemning the Guiltless

As with any delegated authority, there must be some means of proving that authority. In the days of the Old Testament, one could provide documentation sealed (authorized) with the king’s signet (Est 3:12; Dan…
