Of Parables and Miracles

Parable of the Good Samaritan.

When reading the Bible, very often, we encounter interesting parables and miracles of Jesus and sometimes we are unable to recall the actual chapter or particular verse. This excerpt gives you a list of some of the parables and miracles of Jesus with the chief aim that you will be able to cite, and probably, memorise them.

Parables are stories related to the ordinary life of people and they are often used by Jesus to make a moral or religious point. It may be easy to grasp the true meaning of the parables, not only because they are related to life, but also because they usually present a single point or message.

This is the key to understanding parables. Thus, through the use of parables, listeners are strongly encouraged and motivated to make proper decisions about accepting or rejecting Jesus.

Miracles, on the other hand, are mysterious and extraordinary events that occur in the world. Because they surpass all known human and natural power they are ascribed to supernatural causes and are believed to be the action of God the Almighty. For your edification some parables and miracles of Jesus are listed below.
