Revealing the “mysteries” of the parables

Parables: The Mysteries of God’s Kingdom Revealed Through The Stories Jesus ToldJMAC

By John MacArthur

Nelson Books, 2015, 202 pages

Many people read Jesus’ parables in the Gospels and say, “Huh?” In his latest book, Pastor J Mac examines several of Jesus’ parables:

  • A sower went out to sow his seed – Luke 8:5-8
  • Finding hidden treasure – Matthew 13:44, 45-46
  • Hiring laborers for the vineyard – Matthew 20:1-15
  • The good Samaritan – Luke 10:30-35
  • Two men at the Temple; the Pharisee and the tax collector – Luke 18:9-14
  • The faithful servant and the evil servant, the ten bridesmaids, the talents  – Matthew 24:45-51, 25:1-13, 14-30
  • The unjust steward – Luke 16:1-15
  • The rich man and Lazarus – Luke 16:19-31
  • The persistent widow – Luke 18:1-8

J Mac breaks it down and offers some valuable insights. It’s all about salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ and then serving the Lord.

How is a person justified? By faith or by works? Everyone who names the name of Christ needs to read chapter 6 of this book: A Lesson About Justification by Faith (Two men at the Temple; the Pharisee and the tax collector – Luke 18:9-14)
