In Episode 25 we explore Jesus’ use of parables and how using parables offers flexibility for the audience to learn based on their own stage of development. We hit on the idea that Jesus interpretation is given to his apostles and closest disciples of which the author of these gospels was not present for. That Jesus may in fact have been silent allowing wise space for others. Such understanding of biblical criticism and scholarship may in fact offer more room then we thought on what these parable mean to us personally.
