more caught than taught

Saturday June 20th, Mark 4: 33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. 34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything. Jesus spoke in parables or stories so people would hear. Stories have a way of working their way past our defenses and into our hearts. The kingdom is more caught than taught. It is not a bunch of facts or descriptions. It is not a holier than thou place, it includes you, therefore don’t be surprised who else it might include. As a matter of fact, it is beyond description, or a least beyond our comprehension. Jesus often taught in story so we could just catch a glimpse of what was there. A glimpse is beyond belief, and it is only a glimpse. Just think of how much more the kingdom could be, and you will still fall short. Glory.
