Understanding Jesus' Parables
A parable is a simple story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson.
The term for parable is from the Greek word paraballo. The term means to place “by the side of something.” In other words, a parable is where Jesus has taken a picture of the real world to picture something that is true in the spiritual world. Another way to state this is that a spiritual reality is placed next to a picture of the real world.
