The Parables of Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel

Teacher: Gary Walter

Location: Main Building – Room 230


Matthew’s gospel account narrates a total of twenty-four parables. Eleven are unique to Matthew. If you were a follower in Jesus’ day, you would easily understand what he was teaching. He spoke on a level that all could understand IF they were genuinely interested. Matthew chronicles at least twenty-six times that the multitudes followed Him wherever He went. Whether fisherman, farmer, artisan, or builder, there were parables that applied to you.
