Parables of the Bible




Parables are stories that teach or provide guidance in morals, ethics, character, values, and spirutality.

Rounded Rectangle: FRIDAY NIGHT SINGINGS & GOSPEL MEETINGSCharacters in the stories are usually fictional, but can be real.

Many parables were told by Jesus himself, to his Disciples, as he taught them while traveling with them.

Sometimes Jesus told parables during his sermons, to put lessons in simpler and more understandable terms.

There are also other parables told in the Bible, in the Old Testament, but not told by Jesus.

There are parables in both the New Testament and the Old Testament.

It will take some time for me to finish this section, so come back again, to see updates.

Rounded Rectangle: MIRACLES of JESUSBelow are listed most of the more well-known parables of the Bible, and their location in the Bible. 

A few of them are in more than one location.  I am merely human, so there may be an occasional error.

The Beattitudes are in Matt 5:3-11.

The “Golden Rule” is in Matt 7:12.

Strait Gate & Narrow Way” vs  “Wide Gate & Broad Way” is in Matt 7:13-14.

“Strait Gate & Narrow Way” represents the Righteous’s path to Eternal Life, and

“Wide Gate & Broad Way” represents the Wicked’s path to Destruction.

DIVORCE is addressed by Jesus in Matt. 19:9;   Jesus said,  “Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery; and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.”
