Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Understanding the parables is a crucial matter for followers of Jesus. Jesus told parables so His people might comprehend His message about the kingdom of God clearly.
Master expositor and Bible commentator John MacArthur has spent a lifetime explaining the Word of God in clear and comprehensible terms. In Parables he helps Christians understand the essential lessons contained in the most famous and influential short stories the world has ever known.
Praise for Parables
"No one has given a more heroic and consistent defense of the authority and inspiration of Scripture in this generation than John MacArthur. I consider him one of the finest biblical expositors of our day. Few have given more careful attention to interpreting and applying the words of Jesus in the Gospels. I wholeheartedly recommend Parables as a landmark achievement by a beloved and seasoned pastor."
Dr. R.C. Sproul
Founder and Chairman of Ligonier Ministries
“After over 40 years of faithful pastoral ministry, John MacArthur has proven himself to be a sure guide through Scripture and a faithful expositor of God's Word. This new book, Parables, is a rich biblical, theological, and devotional treatment of our Lord's parables.”
R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“An informative and helpful study for those desiring to penetrate into the meaning of a dozen of our Lord's precious word pictures. Dr. MacArthur's treatment of justification by faith alone based on the parable of the tax collector and the Pharisee is outstanding.”
Dr. Joel R. Beeke
President of the Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
“Everything you thought you knew about the parables is reoriented in this new work by John MacArthur to explain their meaning and show their relevance in the lives of believers. Parables is intriguing and stimulating as it pierces through a thick cloud of exegetical misunderstanding about the illustrative teaching of Jesus. John MacArthur stands as a watchman on the ramparts, pointing us back to the protective refuge of Christ inside the walls of truth.’”
