            Begin work on the parables of Jesus



            •   A. THE WORD "PARABLE"...

            •      1. Is a transliteration of the Greek "parabole" (para-bow-LAY)

            •      2. Means "to place beside, to cast alongside"

            •      3. As defined by Vine's Expository Dictionary of N.T. Words, it "signifies a placing of one thing beside another with a view to comparison"

            •      4. A parable is:

            •         a. a story that places one thing beside another for the purpose of teaching"

            •         b. a story that puts the known next to the unknown so that we may learn

            •      5. A parable can usually be identified by the use of the word "like" - cf. Mt 13:31,33


            • 1/30/2018

              Understanding Parables

              1. Is usually a story or narrative drawn from nature or human circumstances
              2. From which spiritual lessons can be made by comparison
                    -- A common definition of a parable is "an earthly story with a heavenly meaning"
                a. Jesus began speaking in parables because of the hardness of many people's hearts - cf. Mt 13:10-17
                 b. By resorting to parables, Jesus effectively separated the truth-seekers from the curiosity-seekers!
                    - Those seeking the truth would say "Explain to us the parable..." - Mt 13:36
                    - Whereas the simply curious could easily be sent away
              4. Indeed, Jesus used parables to carry out Divine judgment...  Mt 13:12
                     a. "For whoever has (a good heart, listening ears), to him more will be given, and he will have abundance (by virtue  of the parable being explained)"
                      b. "But whoever does not have (a good heart, listening ears), even what he has will be taken away from him (by virtue of being sent away with the multitude)"

                The subject matter of parables

                     1. As suggested by Mt 13:11
                     2. Several parables start with
                        "The kingdom of heaven is like..."
                     3. Indeed, "the kingdom of heaven" was the theme of...
                         a. Jesus' itinerant ministry - Mt 4:17,23
                         b. His sermon on the mount - Mt 5:3,10,19-20; 6:10,33; 7:21
                B. The character of the KINGDOM - for example...
                        a. The Parable of the Mustard Seed
                        b. The Parable of the Leaven
                        c. The Parable of the Hidden Treasure
                        d. The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price
                C.  The character of the KING - for example...
                        a. The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard
                        b. The Parable of the Lost Son
                 D. The character of the KING'S SUBJECTS - for example...
                        a. The Parable of the Good Samaritan
                        b. The Parable of the Persistent Widow

                                                                          The goal of this sermon outline is to get a beginning understanding of exegesis and put it to practical application. A good sermon answers the question “What do you want me to do.”  Or “What do you want me to know.”   I am more concerned with proper use of tools than a preach-able sermon.  The sermon is due on Friday and you will have today and tomorrow to work on it in class with my assistance.  Done properly, it will take all of the class time and may require home time as well.

                                                                          • 3/23/2018
