What is a Parable?

“Thus, while it is quite true that Christ’s parables are earthy stories with a heavenly meaning, yet that fails to tell us enough about them. We need to know that the stories Jesus told not only speak to us about the ‘other world’–the word of spiritual reality, the world of God–but that they are also intended to reveal to us something of what God has done, and is doing, and will yet do in the present world, through and in his kingdom, by the person and work of his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.” -John R. DeWitt, Amazing Love
