I promised to start a parable series at the end of November. Alas, I have been very busy and so was not able to do so. I will start it now. My opening observation is to simply note that a parable does not have only one point. Some of them are designed to be full metaphors that portrays history with multiple points of connection. The clearest illustration of this is the parable of the Wicked Husbandmen, which clearly alludes to the leadership's opposition, the prophets, Jesus, his death in several distinct steps. Check it out. Ask questions if you wish.
