Jesus knew that most of God's children were not literate, educated, and the parables were understood according to the geographical, political, topography, and the "then and there" times of His teachings and mission to His disciples.

[left]Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Becauseitisgivenuntoyoutoknowthemysteriesofthekingdomofheaven,buttothemitisnotgiven. [/left]
[left]The word 'mystery', or 'mysteries', simply means a secret. Once Christ reveals the secret, it is no longer a mystery. [/left]

[left]So, Christ reveals His secrets to those who simply believe what He has written us in His Word, even if we do not yet understand it. For if we can come to Christ as an inocent child with trust, He has alot to work with, but if we come to Him already knowing everything [the wise and the prudent], He doesnt have much to work with, therefore, His secrets remain a mystery to many people.[/left]
