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.
