Good morning! Does anyone know of a way to find the parables where Jesus Himself explains what it means? An example would be the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3-9 and other locations as well), which Jesus explains in Matthew 13:18-23). I haven't come up with a way to find any others so far (if there are any others), but then again, I'm not a Logos expert.

Thank you for any help you can offer!

Mark

I don't think there is a "tool" to do this. You will have to find them yourself unless you own a resource which did this already.

JT (alabama24):

One resource is Willmington's Book of Bible Lists that has a list of parables so created a Bible search in the Gospels:

(explain OR means OR understand) NEAR parable

that included Matthew 15:15 explanation (not in Parables list):

I'm surprised there isn't a Parables interactive resource. That would be a great way to systematically go through all the parables and see which ones have explanations with them.

There's also the book All the Parables of the Bible by Herbert Lockyer. Alas, not available in Logos. It should be! So I've added it as a suggestion on UserVoice: https://suggestbooks.uservoice.com/forums/308269-book-suggestions/suggestions/37682476-all-the-parables-of-the-bible

EDIT:

There's a really good post by MJ Smith that lists all the parables in the Bible:
