The Parable of the Mustard Seed:Parables are tools to compare something physical to something spiritual. Jesus begins several parables by saying “The Kingdom of God is like…” so he could tie an abstract concept (the Kingdom of God) to something more concrete and visible (like a mustard seed in Matthew 13:31-32).Jesus chose to teach in story form because stories engage the mind and emotions of listeners like no other form of teaching. By speaking in parables Jesus also fulfilled what was written in the Psalms hundreds of years before he was born: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”Psalm 78:2
