Within these Kingdom Parables our Lord unfolds a number of important divine truths. Truths that have been hid in the past but are now being made known. Truths that are hid from the world but given to those who hear. They are truths we ought to give serious heed to lest we be discouraged or deceived. Without these parables the Christian life would be much more confusing. They help us make sense out of the events we see unfolding within church and in the world.
