Studies in the Parables of Jesus, from Matthew and John. "The parables are very exciting and challenging portions of scripture. They are like mystery novels; there is always something secret about them, something hidden; thus they are enticing, challenging. There are clues given in each of the parables to lead us to the meaning of it. This is God's way of stimulating us to investigate and discover a hidden truth which will be a real treasure to us, enriching our lives in fantastic ways when we act upon it. The study of the parables can be as exciting as reading a mystery novel---even more so---because you are always involved in the parable and there is a treasure to be found at the end."
