Jesus came to earth with a message: "The Kingdom of God has come near!" But how do you explain an advancing, God-led, spiritual kingdom to a people who cannot see anything beyond the decaying, man-led, earthly kingdoms they're oppressed by? Jesus used parables, earth-bound word pictures to ignite the soul for a heaven-bound reality.
