Reading the New Testament is a bit tricky for me. The reason is a lot of was written in parables for the benefit of the Jews. What I think I know about Jesus so far is that He had a message but He knew He had to be careful how it was presented. I guess I get kind of stuck on the presentation. I’m one of those people that like things to be written out word-for-word without any fluff and the New Testament seems to be one parable after another. Some I kinda get. Some are lost to me completely. Do any of you struggle with that?
