The Reason For The Parables

11 to whom he answered, because you are allowed to know the mysteries of the gospel-dispensation, but to them it is not allowed. 12 for to him that uses what he has, shall be given, and he shall have abundantly: but from him that uses it not, shall be taken away, even what he hath. 13 therefore speak I to them in parables: because they over-look what they see: and are inattentive to what they hear, neither will they comprehend.
