Christ in the Old Testament (Parables)

We know that Christ taught in parables but sure enough, it was promised first in the Old Testament.

“My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old” (See Psalm 78:1–2)

And lest we forget, in the New Testament we hear this.

“Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he didn’t say anything to them without using a parable. So fulfilled were the words of the prophet: (See Matthew 13:34–35).

What a ministry; knowing that no matter how hard you worked, people weren’t going to listen. 

“He said, ‘Go and tell this people: “Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving. ’Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed”‘” (Isaiah 6:9–10).

What an uphill battle for the Christ.

“This is why I speak to them in parables: ‘Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: (See Matthew 13:13–15).

Prayer- God, this reminds us to persevere no matter what, because your plans are greater than our knowledge. Amen.
