Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables he told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so his people might comprehend his message about the kingdom of God clearly.

Each parable broken down.

I love how he broke down each parable and how they flowed together to ultimately tell the true story that heaven can only be gained through Christ.

This is truly a must hear book

I thought I was well versed on most of our Lord's parables until hearing Pastor John explain them verse by verse.

Typical Amazingness From John MacArthur

Amazing, in depth knowledge about the parables that I’ve come to expect from John MacArthur. The chapter about the Unjust Steward is so mind blowing, so life changing that the sons of this world are being wiser than the sons of light. Great read that will really challenge you to live out these parables of Christ.
