In his book The Parables of Jesus in Matthew 13 Jack Kingsbury argues that chapter 13 marks the great turning point in Matthew's theological interpretation of Jesus' life. After 13, Jesus no longer tries to teach the people of Israel, but instead concentrates on the disciples, the true people of God. But Kingsbury's analysis of λαλεῑν overlooks important evidence concerning the use of λαλεῑν and διδάσχειν. The author then presents a new interpretation of the difficult statement by Jesus concerning why He spoke in parables.
