Parables of Jesus

23 The Talents

This parable is the third of four parables that we are looking in a series of four parables that Jesus taught back-to-back. They are all connected to each other, and they are all in relation to watching and being ready for the second coming of Jesus. Matthew 25:14-15 14 For the kingdom of heaven is […]

22 The Ten Virgins

Today we are going to be looking at one of the more famous parables in the Bible. It is the parable of the ten virgins. This is found in the beginning of Matthew 25. Matthew 25:1-2 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth […]

21 The Faithful and Evil Servant

  The parable of the faithful servant versus the evil servant is found in Matthew 24. This is the beginning of 4 parables that we will look at one after the other. So the four parables are these: Faithful and evil servant. The 10 virgins. The talents. The sheep and the goats. What’s interesting is […]

20 Without A Wedding Garment

  What was the background to this parable? What was the context in which Jesus gave it? You see, it was still a continuation of what Jesus was saying to the chief priests and elders from the previous chapter. They wanted to know what authority Jesus had to teach and preach and heal. Yet Jesus […]

19 The Lord’s Vineyard

  Before we study the parable itself, let’s have a look at the background leading up to why Jesus spoke this parable. Matthew 21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou […]

17 Labourers of the Vineyard

The parable that we are studying today is unique just to Matthew. It is not found in any of the other gospels. We jump straight into the parable this time. Matthew 20:1-2 1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to […]

16 The Unforgiving Servant

  Once again, Jesus gives a background as to why He tells this parable. What is that reason? Matthew 18:21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Peter thought that he was pretty noble that he would forgive a […]

15 The Two Worshippers

  At the beginning, before Jesus launches into the parable, what is the issue that He is addressing? What is the reason why He is telling this parable? Luke 18:9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: There was a certain group of people […]
