INTRODUCTION TO THE GOSPEL READINGS:
To help us understand Christ’s use of parables…
A ‘parable’ is an illustrative story, by which a familiar idea is cast beside an unfamiliar idea in such a way that the comparison helps people to better understand and grasp the unfamiliar idea. The word ‘parable’ comes from the Greek word (parabolee), para means besides, and ballo means to cast or throw.
The parables that Jesus told were part of his gospel; therefore, they are parables for all peoples throughout all nations and throughout all time.
