I taught the crowds in parables, and explained them to my disciples. Do you think I did this to reveal meaning or to obscure meaning? Some concepts lend themselves to legal or scientific language. Others are better understood through symbolic language and metaphor. I came to declare the Kingdom of God and it is better revealed by the second method. Does your rational background make you think that meaning is only expressed by the first method? Do you understand that symbol and metaphor are real as much as closed-form linear structured argument? He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
