Mark records in chapter 4, verse 2 that: “He (Jesus), taught them (the crowd) many things by PARABLES, . . .” Does Jesus, Himself, explain WHY? Regarding the parable of “The Sower,” Jesus said to His disciples in Mark 4:13: “. . . Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?” We will look only at some excerpts of this parable in Matthew, Mark, and Luke but then turn our focus to parables regarding a “Banquet” in Matthew and Luke. Does Jesus tell the same parable, but with slightly different viewpoints given by Matthew and Luke? Considering the question of the “title,” Have you cleared your Calendar? Do you already have the appropriate attire? Will you be taking any guests? Do they know the “dress code” or is it “come as you are?”
