    What, then, do the parables teach? Church fathers such as Irenaeus and Augustine identified the treasure and the Pearl with Christ. The recent convert to Christianity says exactly the same thing: "I found Christ." Yes, it seems like we did find Christ.

    In his series of seven parables in Chapter 13, Matthew is quite elaborate ....... on the first two, providing an interpretation for each. The other five are shorter and more pointed in content. The parables of the hidden treasure and of the pearl consists of two sentences each. And in ...read more
