Jesus is famous for teaching in parables. In all three synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), Jesus explains that he teaches in parables so that "seeing they may not see and hearing they may not understand." Which raises a serious question...
Didn't Jesus want people to understand his teaching?
Why would he hide it from them and try to confuse them?
Doesn't he want people to get it so that can repent and be saved?
In this episode of The Bible in Life podcast, we dig in Luke 8:4-21 to explore this question.
