About Product: Why did Jesus teach in parables? Because some will have eyes to see and ears to hear, and others will not (see Matthew 13:10–17). That was clearly the case in His day, so how well do we really understand His many parables today? In The Parables of Jesus, Elder Gerald N. Lund shares not only the ancient context and setting in which each parable was taught, but also illuminates the language and layers found within the parables, helping us see the application for our own lives today. As we seek the divine truths often obscured by parables, the Lord can help us better understand ourselves and reveal to us eternal insights.
