The Parables of Jesus and the Last Days

Parables of Jesus - 2The parables of Jesus are an interesting subject. They were given as a result of the Jews’ rejection of Jesus. In other words, the parables were preached to a closed minded people. They have a two-fold purpose. On the one hand they reveal the secrets of the Kingdom of God to “those who have ears to hear,” but on the other hand, they have the effect of hiding the secrets of the Kingdom of God from those whose minds are closed to the truth.

Below are a number of studies of mine, which nearly always aren’t wholly mine. I have based them upon, and they follow the sequence of, a You Tube video series, The Eschatology of the Parables of Jesus, presented by Dr. Don Preston. They don’t interpret all of the content of the parables, nor do I mention every parable. I was interested only in the eschatology of the parables themselves, and, quite frankly, not every parable speaks of the last days, so I left those out. With this in mind, I hope the reader will enjoy these studies, as much as I enjoyed studying them and deriving content from Dr. Preston’s work.
