I will Open My Mouth in Parables Matthew 13

Posted by adventbiblestudy on November 16, 2010


KJV Matthew 13:34. All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: 35. That

Jesus and His Parables

Jesus and His Parables

it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

This is a rather simple study illustrating the need to locate the original texts when a prophet is quoted.

Psalms 78:1-8 KJV Maschil of Asaph. Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. (2) I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: (3) Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. (4) We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. (5) For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: (6) That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children: (7) That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: (8) And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

When reading the original scripture, we can easily see, it is the responsibility of the parents to teach the children what they have heard and known. This information was to be passed down from generation to generation.

The original prophecy was written by David. Hundreds of years later Matthew was influenced by the Spirit to add it to his book. Was this to remind the readers about their responsibility? Or was the book of Matthew making another point? If the parents had taught the children and fulfilled their obligations, would they have recognized Jesus as the Son of God?
