The Parables of Jesus
By Philip Coghlan, C.P.

Coghlan examines the parables listed below in the Table of Contents.

From the Introduction:
In the New Testament, the term "parable" (Greek parabole, a placing beside or opposite, comparison) is used in different senses. Sometimes it stands for type or symbol (e.g, Heb_9:9); but it is most extensively used to denote a real or fictitious history related more or less in detail, and intended as the vehicle of some moral or religious truth. Sometimes, instead of a history, a similitude in the form of a simple natural phenomenon (e.g, the budding of the fig-tree, Mat_24:32); or some image from everyday life (e.g, the man allotting to his servants their various duties before he sets out for another country, Mar_13:34) serves the same purpose and receives the name of parable.

We have seen that parables in the ordinary New Testament signification of the term already existed several centuries before Christ. These, however, are few in comparison with the parables derived from rabbinic sources which are still extant, and which furnish much help toward the understanding of Our Lord’s parables. Some of them are the work of His contemporaries; others belong to later periods.
