parables are comparisons of things one of which is understood the other not ie. heaven and the pearl of great price. We can't grasp what heaven will be like but know it is worth buying the pearl of great price because we know the value of the pearl. This gives us an idea of the value of heaven.
Examples in the Bible:
2 Samuel 12: 1-4 - the poor man who had raised a single lamb.
Isaiah 5:1-6 - the vineyard which does not thrive
Matthew 13: 45,46 - The pearl of great price.
Matthew 13:3-9 - The sower
Luke 10:25-37 - The good Samaritan
The above noted New Testament passages and everywhere else throughout the four gospels [Matthew, Mark, Luke and John] where Jesus speaks publicly, are examples of parables.
Parables are prophecies. The purpose of them was to HIDE THE MEANING of what He was saying FROM the general masses:
"He [Jesus] used many such stories and illustrations to teach the people as much as they were able to understand. In fact, in His pubic teaching He taught ONLY WITH PARABLES, but afterward when He was alone with His disciples, HE EXPLAINED THE MEANING TO THEM." (Mark 4:33-34 NLT)
"In fact"... the entire book of Revelation, which Jesus revealed to John, IS A PARABLE that has never been understood by the general public... but is intended only for God's servants to drink in, consume, chew on, digest, and understand:
"This is the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God [the Father] gave Him concerning events that will happen soon. An angel was sent to God's servant John so that John could share that revelation WITH GOD'S OTHER SERVANTS... God blesses the one who reads this prophecy to the church, and He blesses all who listen to and obey what it says. For the time is near when these things will happen." (Rev.1:1-3 NTL)
A parable entertains you at the front door, while the truth slips in through a side window.
In the parable of the prodigal son , the names of the brothers as well as of the father are not given.
It means having plenty of.
Jesus taught approximately 40 parables.
Reverend Parson Hopper
The Buddha did teach with parables, mostly using metaphors of things the people of his time dealt with everyday, and quite often with whatever was most prominent in his world -- for example there is the Path, and the groundless ground, and lots of discussion of water.
Most of the fantastic tales like the Jatakas and stories about the Buddha walking on water (or teleporting across it) were added to the suttas later. And because the Buddha's tales pre-date Christianity by at least a couple of centuries, some scholars say that many of the tales about Jesus in the Bible were inspired by Buddhist stories.AnswerYes Buddha taught with stories or parables as did many religions. This was used as an aid to memory to help students remember.
Plus so many other ways as well. Studying nature give Buddist"s insight as well. Here is an example of a Buddist parable. (Or commentary) ...... Whatever happens in your life, JOYFULL or PAINFUL, do not be swept away by reactivity. Be patient with yourself and don"t lose youe sense of perspective. Whichever of the two occurs , be patient.Answeryea that's true ,Buddha taught his students and followers in easily understanding and get to know the exact points.you can see that way is more successful and most of lecturers and teachers use that method.
Buddha is different from other religious leaders such as Jesus cause he got ability to see early lifes of his soul by that way he can easily tell stories which are commonly known as "Early Lifes' Stories",and Buddha is NOT a person but a state that anyone can reach so I guess you probably said about Gautama Buddha.
cause only one person can reach the Buddha state at one specific period mostly that person is known as Buddha.
You can not be a Jesus,but you can be a Buddha if you work hard that's the democracy of Buddhism.the next Buddha who is known as Maitri will born in 30,000AD according to Legend and many Buddhist Scriptures.
History became legend, legend became myth.!See Related LinksSee the Related Links for "Buddhist Stories" to the bottom for the answer.
The prodigal himself is fully restored to his father's household, but the jealousy displayed by his older brother is left unresolved. The parable ends with the father telling the older son that "it was right" to be glad and make merry over the restoration of his errant younger brother. (This "jealousy element" of the parable makes it clear that the older brother represents the Jews, while the younger brother represents the Gentiles. The parable is found only in Luke 15:11-31.)
* Parables are what Christ used in the Bible to teach lessons. He used them to teach lessons to the children and everyone else, though only those who were willing to follow Him actually learned their true meaning. == == * Jesus told parables while He was teaching, to help us understand what He was telling us. == == * To confuse those who are not Jesus' direct disciples.Luke 8:9And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand. == == * Parables have been used in a number of different contexts as a method of teaching. In the New Testament the Greek word parabole means 'a placing beside' or a 'placing of one thing beside another' with the idea of making a comparison. The parable is generally used to describe a teaching or story which is drawn from either nature or human experience, the aim of which is to teach or illustrate a spiritual lesson. There is a distinction between a parable which uses earthly things and gives them a spiritual meaning, and a fable which gives things attributes which they do not normally have naturally.
* Jesus frequently taught in parables in which He frequently taught truths connected with the kingdom of God. It has been noted by some that Jesus' withholding of the true meaning of the parables was a judgment upon them due to their being in some manner unworthy. Edersheim expands on this when he states in relation to them "They are all occasioned by some unreceptiveness on the part of the hearers, and that, even when the hearers are professing disciples." (Alfred Edersheim:The Life and Times of Jesus The Messiah, p400)
* Thus, the secret of the parables was most certainly available to all who sincerely sought it with a heart that was right. The spiritual analogy was not for those who did not wish to submit themselves and to follow Jesus as their master and so it remained hidden from them. Their lack of submission and receptiveness was their choice. At other times Jesus spoke plainly enough, as well as through His works.
* Jesus spoke in Parables because he learnt this method from his training in India and Tibet.
There is no such concept within either Judaism or the Hebrew language. The closest you can get is:
×”×‘×Ÿ ×”××•×‘×“ (ha-ben ha-oved), which means "the lost son"
×”×‘×Ÿ ×”×‘×–×‘×–× ×™ (ha-ben ha-bazbezani) which means "the wasteful son"
A parable is a narrative used by Jesus to demonstrate or teach the point he was making. The Biblical parables are mostly concerned with portraying spiritual truth.
It also means in a more generic sense, any story that is used to teach a moral lesson or just instruct in general.
The most recognized examples of parables are Jesus parables in the bible.
Answer2: Jesus often used parables, short stories from which moral or spiritual truths are drawn. Since stories are easier to grasp and remember than abstract ideas, the parables helped to preserve Jesus' teachings. Jesus described his Father with vivid word pictures that could not be easily forgotten. See Jehovah's Witnesses official website for further information

The climax is that the father forgave his son inspite of the wrong things that he had done.

Put your talents to good use, whether they are great or small.
Luke 15 v11-32.
And he - Jesus - said, A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me. And he divided unto them his living. And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want. And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry. Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing. And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant. And he said to him, Thy brother is come; and thy father has killed the fatted calf, because he has received him safe and sound. And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him. And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gave me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends: But as soon as this thy son was come, which has devoured thy living with harlots, thou has killed for him the fatted calf. And he said to him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
The black veil is a symbol of secret sin. This could represent the secret sin that all men carry in their hearts, or it could be representative of Mr. Hooper's specific sin, adultery. Edgar Allan Poe speculated that Minister Hooper may have had an affair with the young lady who died at the beginning of the story, as this is the first day he wears the veil, "and that a crime of dark dye, (having reference to the young lady) has been committed, is a point which only minds congenial with that of the author will perceive." Also, he is unable to tell his fiancée why he wears the veil due to a vow he has made, and is unwilling to show his face to the young lady even in death. Also, two funeral attendees see a vision of him walking hand in hand with the girl's spirit.
It is about two ffoolish boys who have their own opinions about what an inscription means. both go different ways and both have different outcomes that leave them neither richer nor poorer.
"He was once wealthy, but he lost it all through prodigal living."
"Prodigal" means, "recklessly wasteful; wildly extravagant."
Whenever a child of our own strays away from the love of their family, we do not stop loving them, but long for their return. When this eventually happens we celebrate their return with open arms. One should never stop loving our children or friends because they go astray, but be glad that they have returned to the fold. We are all Gods children, and we have the same love for His children as He has for all of us.
All religions teach moral truths. Beyond this, the truth of any one religion is a matter of faith on the part of its believers. The existence of any one God is no more provable than the existence of another.
Yes, that is the whole point of fables and parables. Both are short tales that teach a moral or ethical lesson. However, parables are more akin to the teaching of Jesus Christ wheras fables tend to use animals, inanimate objects, or people (extraordinary or not) to teach morals. Fables are what one would read out of Aesop (Tortoise and the Hare, The Ant and the Grasshopper to name a few).
The writer contrasts Chinese art with European art by using two stories. The Tang Emperor Xuanzong commissioned the painter Wu Daozi to decorate a palace wall. When it was done the Emperor admired the scene. The painter drew the Emperor's attention to a cave and when he clapped his hands the entrance of the cave opened. The painter entered but before Emperor could move the entrance closed and the painting vanished, along with the artist. In another story, a painter wouldn't draw the eye of a dragon he had painted for fear it would fly out of the painting. The writer then cites a story representative of Western painting in which a master blacksmith Quinten Metsys fell in love with a painter's daughter. To be accepted as a son-in-law Quinten painted a fly on the painter's latest panel. When the painter tried to swat it away he realised the truth - Quinten was taken on as an apprentice and married his beloved.
These stories reveal what each form tries to achieve. The Europeans want a perfect illusionstic likeness while in Asia it is the essence of inner life and spirit. In the Chinese story only the artist knows the way within and he reaches his goal beyond material appearance. Unlike a Western figurative painting a classical Chinese landscape does not reproduce an actual view and one can enter it from any point and travel in it. It requires the active participation of the viewer both physically and mentally. Man becomes a conduit of communication or 'the eye of the landscape.'
