This week I hope to write a few post on "The Kingdom of God/Heaven." Most, if not all, of the descriptions we find dealing with the "Kingdom" in scripture are spoken through parables. So, throughout the week I hope to look at a few of those parables.
The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”
He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Those who have will be given more, and they will have an abundance. As for those who do not have, even what they have will be taken from them. This is why I speak to them in parables:
“Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
