Pay attention to the Detail (2)

“Then He taught them
many things by parables,
and said to them
in His teaching:”
(Mark 4:2)

Jesus taught many things
By parables
PLURAL

One parable that follows
Is about “The Sower”
BUT…
He taught them
A number of parables

“But when He was alone,
those around Him with
the twelve asked Him
about the parable.”
(Mark 4:10)

“The parable” IS
The parable of
The Sower

“And He said to them,
“Do you not understand
this parable?
How then will you
understand all the parables?” “
(Mark 4:13)

Most people are familiar
With the parable of
The Sower…

But have we been aware
That when Jesus taught
This parable…
He did so along with
Other parables too…

“And again He began
to teach by the sea.
And a great multitude
was gathered to Him,
so that He got into a boat
and sat in it on the sea;
and the whole multitude
was on the land
facing the sea.
Then He taught them
many things by parables,
and said to them
in His teaching:”
(Mark 4:1 -2)

Mark does NOT tell us
What these “other”
Parables were…

But Jesus tells us here
In verse 13
That in order to understand
ALL of His parables
You NEED to understand
THIS ONE…
