Jesus employed the parable as a method of public teaching because it proceeds from the things which are known to the discernment of the unknown. It also provides for a simultaneous appeal to vastly different levels of mind and spirit. The parable stimulates the imagination, challenges the discrimination, and provokes critical thinking; it promotes sympathy without arousing antagonism.
