Hey everyone and welcome to Refinery Life Australia.
Today we are starting a new series titled “The Master speaks to us today through the Parables,” these teachings are based on Jesus’ parables that describe the nature of the kingdom of God.
Today we are talking about Only God Knows, and He’s Not Telling.
Have you heard the old saying, “If God is God, He’s not good. And if He’s good, He’s not God.”
If these words seen to apply anywhere in the Bible, its here!
Although written differently in this parable, the endless question is echoed, “Why doesn’t God do something about all the evil in the world?”
As after the first parable, the parable of the sower, the disciples needed Jesus to explain the meaning.
Jesus readily obliged them.
In fact, He did something that we hesitate to do in explaining parables.
He gave multiple identifications, listing six people or things with symbolic meanings.
This parable borders on a hidden meaning.
