Why Jesus Used Parables?
My protestant friend would like to discuss "why" Jesus used parables. I searched past threads on this, and I couldn't find a match.
Is there an answer to, "why?" in Sacred Scripture? My impression is that we can make up a reason ourselves (uneducated masses relating better to parables, for example, is an easy guess - another guess is that parables would be more easily transmitted through time?).
But, that's not really my question. My question is - does the Church answer the question of "Why?". Does Sacred Scripture answer the question of, "Why?"
