The heart of Jesus’ teaching is often expressed in the form of parables. Knowing how to read and interpret the parables is essential in getting at the mind, heart and intention of Jesus.  St. Jerome stressed this powerfully when he stated that “Ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ.”  Immersing ourselves in the Scriptures is a necessary component of all Christian living.
