THE PARABLES ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD
Some of these articles about the parables of Jesus regarding the Government of God are designed to accompany the End Time Prophecy article and the others that go with it. Those articles go to great lengths to point out the Bibles own interpretations of its own prophecies as opposed to the modern day pop culture prophecy teachers approach that ignore that information. The interpretations of those parables listed below put forth very simple explanations based on info elucidated in those articles. If the reader has trouble understanding how it is possible to come to the conclusions these articles do and would like to know they can avail themselves of the other articles first.
This first set of four parables are somewhat tied together in scripture as a set. Spoken in one setting by Jesus, (at least according to Mark.) They come from: Matthew 13, Mark 4, Luke 8; 13:18-21
