Luke 8:10

King James Version

10 And he said, 

Unto you it is given to know 

the mysteries of the kingdom of God: 

but to others in parables; 

that seeing they might not see, 

and hearing they might not understand.

Ever heard of parables?

Why did JESUS speak in parables?

What was His purpose?

Let JESUS tell us:

Matthew 13:10-17

King James Version

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, 

Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, 

Because it is given unto you 

to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, 

but to them it is not given.

12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, 

and he shall have more abundance: 

but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away 

even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: 

because they seeing see not; 

and hearing they hear not, 

neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, 

which saith, 

By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; 

and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:

15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, 

and their ears are dull of hearing, 

and their eyes they have closed; 

lest at any time they should see with their eyes 

and hear with their ears, 

and should understand with their heart, 

and should be converted, 

and I should heal them.

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: 

and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, 

That many prophets and righteous men 

have desired to see those things which ye see, 

and have not seen them; 

and to hear those things which ye hear, 

and have not heard them.

Matthew 13:34-35

King James Version

34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude 

in parables; 

and without a parable spake he not unto them:

35 That it might be fulfilled 

which was spoken by the prophet, 


I will open my mouth in parables; 

I will utter things which have been kept secret 

from the foundation of the world.
