The parables of the Lord Jesus form a crucial part of the Bible. Jesus had the knowledge to simplify a profound truth in order to share with mankind a kind of story that ordinary believers could easily understand. A parable is a simple story, referring to something that gives deep, important and instructive lessons. It also uses an entire story to convey a spiritual lesson. It is easier for the listeners to remember a lesson from a story than for a long narrative that the listeners can easily forget.
