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.

Awesome!!!

Great job by the author putting so much into describing the parables Jesus used. Great book to learn how Jesus told stories that we still use today in are day to day lives to be more like Him.

The topic is great, but voice is sleep inducing

I ended up exchanging this audible book. I think iI would be better off reading this myself. The narrators voice put me to sleep 3 times in just the prolouge and part of the first chapter. I had to exchange this book.
