When jesus spke in parrables, was he



a)  packaging words, to go out with a universal appeal?

b)  forming ideas for under-formed minds?

c)  being a trickster, and withholding info?

d)  spoon-feeding in stages, over stories, to match a growing “digestion” capability?

e)  introducing ideas, that might reproduce in minds, and feed many?

f)  packaging words in a narrative style, to go out with a universal appeal?

g)  acting self-consciously enigmatic?

h)  speaking to individual groups within the larger gathering?

i)  or was he weaving several different meanings into his stories simultaneously?

j)  or a combination of many in one man?

did i miss anything? this topic is cool because Jesus had everybody confused. and if i remember right from my bible studies, he knew it.

      Yes, live energy working long after the words are spoken. It occurred to me a moment ago that He, or any teacher would be learning. to the extent that He was man, and grew from a child, Jesus body followed the normal stages of learning. Mind and body unifying, getting to know each other. In the same way he was capable of despair, He was still on a path in growing and developing and unifying with the heavenly Father. Point K?
