PREMISE: Parables are examples of real life events, (as Jesus spoke of earthly things John 3:12) not a figure of speech as stated in verses.
Parable of the good Samaritan an example to copy. The character of Jesus stated to have spoken in clear language. John 8:43 Why is my language not clear to you ..
Figure of speech a language of the Pharisees, of Religious people. In fact we read many Parables entirely not real, entirely made up, full of nonsense, not of reality. The “snakes brood of vipers” as Jesus called the Pharisees probably thought if Jesus could tell Parables so could they.
Interestingly the Parable of Jesus were for the Teachers of the Law, not for the people.
Matt 21:45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus’ parables, they knew he was talking about them. — Parables for the Pharisees. For them, to them.
Why do Religious love ‘figure of speech’ so much? Because figure of speech can always turn into a “Joke” or “Didn’t really mean it”. In Secularism people are honest, say what they mean, mean what they say. Not so in Religions (sneaky).
In Religion there is no clear language. Everything is read in a context, it’s explained, it’s a figure of speech, words have a different meaning (of craziness).
Words are not defined by the English Dictionary but by beliefs, therefore no one can read on their own. Therefore anything read in the bible can be given a different interpretation. How convenient. So all the bad parts can be turned around, truth turned upside down (of evildoers).
Mark 12:12 Then the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders looked for a way to arrest him because they knew he had spoken the parable against them. But they were afraid of the crowd; so they left him and went away. — The crowds agreeing with Jesus. Reason why He was declared by High Priests the “King of the Jews” not their King. And again Parables exposing the Pharisees, they were for them, about them.
Yet we read verses make believe Parables for the people. Not true, as Jesus stated that those without the key of knowledge were Religious Pharisees. But as soon as they understood the Parable wanting to arrest Jesus. We read of the terror they were imposing, they were dictators. No one could go against them.
Luke 20:19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people. — Of course Jesus could not teach! Speaking against the Pharisees even with Parable so they (Pharisees) could understand. And some of them believed in Jesus, reason why they were divided among themselves and turned Jesus into their savior (fabrication) after His death (how convenient).
Mark 4:33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. — This verse make believe ‘”them” were the people. But Jesus stated that those without “knowledge” (reasoning, common sense) were the Pharisees.
Matt 13:13 This is why I speak to them (to the Pharisees) in parables: ‘Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. — True, they even deny reality-science facts-evidence. No key of knowledge.
- Matt 13:15 this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ — Evildoers must turn away from evil/anger/hate/revenge blinding them. Turn to Love-Care-Compassion to be healed. The sick are those who want to hurt themselves or others. The crazy are those violent.
John 10:6 Jesus used this figure of speech, (?) but they did not understand what he was telling them. — Pharisees words. They did not understand not the people in the streets. N.B. Pharisees were always listening to Jesus, asking questions, harassing Him because hard to understand, because refusing to listening.
John 16:25 ‘Though I have been speaking figuratively, (?) a time is coming when I will not longer use this kind of language (?) but will tell you plainly about my Father. — Sounds words of the Pharisees. This kind of language? Pharisees thought that way. Mark 2:7 “Why does this fellow talk like that? ..
Parables or no Parables Jesus language not accepted BECAUSE He did not teach what’s in the OT. To forgive that was something Pharisees did not do. Evildoers do not forgive. They hate and are revengeful (evidence we see in reality).
And we read in John 16:25 of a Father mysterious now? Those keeping things hidden-secrets-mysterious are the Pharisees! In Atheism-Secularism people speak clearly, they wants the truth, not secrets.
Secrecy a thing found in Religion. In fact indoctrinating children not to speak to have secrets so they can molest them (how convenient) of evildoers. Evildoers love secrets. Gangs use secrets to tie themselves together.
John 16:29 Then Jesus’ disciples (?) said, ‘Now you are speaking clearly and without figures of speech. — 1. Jesus did not have disciples but followers, “Follow me” He stated. 2. Pharisees (the snakes) changing words making believe the disciples also did not understand. Not possible. Jesus chose non religious to follow Him, therefore not not indoctrinated like the real disciples of the Pharisees. Discipleship requires a conversion. Jesus against Religions and vows, therefore He did not have disciples.
Matt 13:10 The disciples (?) came to him and asked, ‘Why do you speak to the people (?) in parables?‘ 11 He replied, ‘The knowledge of the secrets (?) of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. — This is a question the Pharisees wanted to know. For sure they asked Jesus this question. But changing words making believe the disciples (followers) were dumb not to understand NOT themselves.
Mark 4:2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3 ‘Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. — N.B. The Pharisees and teachers of the law always in the crowds trying to chatch Him in something He might say, Luke 11:54 Plotting against Him to catch Him in something He might say.
Matt 22:1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2 ‘The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. — When Parable are of nonsense we can assume are made up by the Pharisees and there are many. And many kept but distorted-corrupted for sure.
Matt 13:3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: ‘A farmer went out to sow his seed.
Mark 3:23 So Jesus called them and spoke to them in parables: ‘How can Satan drive out Satan? — This is not a parable but a question. So many contradiction concerning “Parables”.
Mark 4:10 When he was alone, the Twelve (?) and the others around him asked him about the parables. — More like the Pharisees asked Him!
Mark 4:11 He told them, ‘The secret (?) of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables. — Not clear language and the truth have no secrets. Sounds Pharisees.
Mark 12:1 He then began to speak to them in parables: ‘A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmer and went away on a journey.
Matt 13:34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; [he did not say anything to them without using a parable]. — The last words not true, Jesus spoke to them without Parable. The whole gospel it’s about Jesus and the Pharisees. Jesus asked Pharisees questions, they asked Him. Lies written.
Matt 13:35 So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: ‘I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.
Mark 4:34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, (?) he explained everything. — Again Pharisees could no accept that Jesus did not speak Parable for people. Therefore we find corruption.
Mark 4:2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3 ‘Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. — People understood ‘the examples’ Jesus was talking about. Many verses make believe people did not understand WHEN Jesus was telling the people how blind, without reasoning Pharisees were!
Luke 20:9 He went on to tell the people this parable: ‘A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time.
Luke 8:9 His disciples asked him what this parable meant.
Matt 13:53 When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there.
John 3:12 I have spoken to you of earthly things … ~ When Jesus spoke the Parable He spoke of real things comparable to real events, real life examples (Parables).
Those Parables corrupted-made up by the Pharisees (of course they probably thought if Jesus wrote parable why couldn’t they also?) are dumb, they make no sense, not of this earth comparable, and they are quite a few.
The Good Samaritan (Parable for the Pharisees. Two set of religious passing by, doing nothing while the Samaritan stopped and helped).
The Tenants (Parable for the Pharisees. Jesus believed an inheritance and killed).
The sheep and the Goats (Simple parable about righteous and unrighteous. Nothing to do with the Sabbath or blasphemy or sex, which is what religions believe ‘righteous’ is).
The Moneylender (Jesus anointed by a Sinful Woman). Sounds Pharisees. Not such a thing Jesus anointed by a sinful Men.
The Weeds N.B. Too many Parables, of course they cannot all be of Jesus as He spoke clearly, plainly, without secrets. Pharisees are those loving secrets, vows, promises, swearing, offended by the truth.

The Ten Minas (Mixed/corrupted Parable with the Parable of The Talents)
The Prodigal Son
The Persistent Widow (A totally fabricated Parable full of contradictions because “Illogical” not realistic. Jesus’ Parables are all based on real life examples/stories not fake-imaginary (as this Parable and others). Pharisees added parable to Jesus and they sound dumb and illogical as they always are.
The Wedding Banquets (A totally fabricated Parable not of Jesus made up by religious (Pharisees. Did not speak of real life examples and of killings and murders).
All Parables that are dumb do not make sense, they are clearly not of Jesus. Jesus spoke a clear language (John 8:43) of earthly things (John 3:12) warning us to stay away from evil.
