It is the writer's object to delve a bit deeper into the history behind .Christ's parables in the Matthew account. He has found in his narrowed and short experience, that there is a very close relationship between the earthly and the heavenly elements of this particular type of instruction. And in order to make these important truths, taught in the parables. more vivid, more realistic to his own understanding, he approached this subject - that he might thereby establish at least a short and concise background· of the parables, to learn and appreciate the common scenes and customs of Christ’s day, which that Master of teachers so delicately wove into such beautiful exhibitions of this popular teaching method.
