Does Jesus want us to know and understand Him? His disciples were confused about that, because even they couldn't figure out His parables. Why didn't He just come straight out and say what He meant? Jesus expects any and everyone to understand His meaning, but the sad fact is, many won't, many can't. Can you? Do you struggle to understand what God has revealed in Scripture? There are a number of reasons why you may not understand, and Jesus brings out a key reason in this passage. From Matthew 13:1-23.
