This book is entitled Parables of the Messiah because the parables were spoken by Jesus, the Messiah, and because only with a Messianic interpretation do we reach the meaning Jesus intended. They were spoken by the King to people interested in the kingdom of God. They were a challenge to men and women to think.
The figures used were generally connected with Old Testament language concerning the Messiah, failure to discern which hinders recognition of what was in the thought of Jesus. In other words, the Messianic content of the parables is the primary meaning, and to make them merely stories for moral truths robs them of their vital purpose.
The study of the parables pays a rich dividend in fuller understanding of Jesus Christ, as well as of his message; and since so many parables are rooted in the Old Testament it increases the knowledge and understanding of the writings of Moses and the prophets.
