"One of the titles of Jesus Christ is `the WORD' (Logos in Greek). This WORD became incarnate in Jesus of Nazareth. Christ means Messiah, the appointed one of the LORD God. It was prophesied that the Messiah would teach people in parables. The word `parables' means an explanation of divine principles or facts with reference to similar events of principles in our world. Jesus Christ is God Himself. His explanation of divine principles with reference to worldly examples is authoritative. The divine principles were given in the Old Testament yet they were hidden from people for many centuries. Jesus Christ came to reveal and teach those principles through his parables. The author found forty-four parables in the synoptic Gospels. He selected forty-one and identifies the texts in those parables which could be a summary of the teachings of the parable. Sometimes, Jesus Christ explained a few parables to his disciples whenever they asked for explanation, which help describe the ideas of the text. Rupwate attempts to explain these textual ideas with reference to the Bible, the word of God. This book helps recognize the doctrines Jesus Christ upheld. These same doctrines were taught by the apostels of Jesus Christ to the churches of their time and it eventually formed the apostolic doctrines for all believers in Jesus Christ.This book would be a great help to evangelists to propagate biblical teachings to Christians and others. In this book and other published books of the author, each chapter ends with recommended hymns and responsive reading. This arrangement of the sermons would help ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ to plan devotional services around themes." Printed Pages: 457.
