UNVEILED MYSTERIES: The Purpose of Parables

  

Mark 4:1-41

22 January 2023

In our series, Unveiled Mysteries, we have pointed out that the mystery of the gospel was being slowly revealed through all sixteen chapters. In this chapter we note that Jesus often spoke in parables in the gospels, but why, especially when the invitation was to all people to come? The answer for the mystery and the parables is one in the same, that the message of the gospel was so subversive to everyone. It was subversive to the religious people because it did not fit their theology, and to the rulers of this world because it would undermine their power. Nonetheless, the gospel was a bright light that could not be hidden, and its message is a test of every heart who hears it.
