Ears to Hear: The Parables of Jesus – The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and Pearl
There was a time in Jesus’ ministry when He began to teach in parables. So much so the disciples asked Him, “Why do You speak to the people in parables?” Is Jesus trying to keep the secrets of the kingdom of heaven from certain people by speaking in parables? No, Jesus is speaking in parables to show that insight and faith are the result of God’s Spirit working in the heart of the believer. He also teaches in parables to acknowledge that the crowds are not responding to Him favorably. Throughout out each midweek Lenten service we will hear one of Jesus’ parables. Tonight our parable is: “The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and Pearl.” Let all who have ears hear.
