According to Jesus, parables are for losers so "that they may look but not see, and listen but not understand." (Luke 8:10)

@Ephrem: if this is true then the disciples too were losers because they didn't understand 8:9. Yet Jesus explained it to them. why? Because they wanted to know. Everyone there heard and saw but failed to understand because they chose not to try to understand. I believe Jesus spoke in parables to weed out those who wanted to understand by asking for clarification from those who would choose to walk away. So, ironically, parables aren't for losers-they're for winners.

So, what did you think?

Thank you.
