Topic of the Week   (Hatoor 10-16)
The Mystery of Parables


Verse of the Week
"And the disciples came and said to Him, 'Why do You speak to them in parables?' He answered and said to them, 'Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.'"

- Matthew 13:10-12

Meaning: The mysteries of the kingdom are not mere esoteric concepts or a body of religious truth only for the elite. Nor is true understanding of the parables simply an intellectual apprehension. Even the disciples find His message hard to understand. Jesus preached and taught the same message to all; but it is the 'babes,' the simple and innocent, who are open to the gospel and have the faith to receive this mystery, which is the reality of the Kingdom. When one has zeal, he will be given more from God. But if he does not use what he has, and fails to participate in the life of the Kingdom, God's gifts will be taken away. This is a hard saying, but true.



Proverb of the Week
"He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy."

Proverbs 28:13
