9781330777749: The Parables of the Lord Jesus According to S. Matthew (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Parables of the Lord Jesus According to S. Matthew

It was not until about the close of the second year of His sacred ministry that our Lord began to teach regularly by parables. It is true that we meet with parabolic sayings and illustrations, not only singly, but in pairs, before this. Nothing, however, is to be found of regular, systematic teaching by parables, as at a later period. We naturally ask, Why was this? Why should the earlier ministry be hortatory and didactic in its character, while the later is parabolical and marked by reserve?

The difference between the two methods of teaching is to be accounted for by the change which, as the second year of our Lord's ministry was drawing to its close, began to manifest itself in the attitude of the nation and its leaders toward Him. So long as He was content to be recognized simply as a prophet, the Jewish people heard Him gladly. But no sooner did He begin to assert His higher claims, and to intimate that He came not only to fulfil the old, but also to establish a new order, than opposition began to manifest itself.
