The Perean Ministry

“When Jesus goes into the area beyond the Jordan River, he enters the Perean province ruled by the tetrarch Herod Antipas, the same Herod who had earlier beheaded John the Baptist.  Jesus does not fear Herod, however, because he knows that his end will come only in Jerusalem.  It is unclear whether a warning about Herod comes from Pharisees who really believe in Jesus or whether they are simply trying to get Jesus to leave their area.

Jesus once again teaches through numerous parables covering a wide range of subjects including the cost of discipleship, the value of lost souls, the rejection of his kingdom, the need for humility, and the unrighteousness of hypocritical religion.”

Teaching Through Parables

“Jesus continues to teach his disciples quietly concerning the kingdom of God.  As the Great Teacher, Jesus uses numerous methods of instructing his disciples.  Of all his methods, however, perhaps the most interesting and distinctive mode of teaching is his use of parables.  These illustrations of a moral truth or principle are usually in the form of a simple comparison.  As often =as not, Jesus’ parables are comparisons with things either found in nature or known through human experience.

Although Jesus says the parables will have the effect of concealing truth, he must have in mind those hearers whose hearts are closed to his teaching.  Most of the lessons are fairly simple to understand and especially well-suited for the common man, to whom Jesus directs his teaching.”
