P4 Where to find Jesus' parables

Matthew 13:1-3a That day Jesus went out of the house and was sitting by the sea. 2 And large crowds gathered to Him, soHe got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd was standing on the beach. 3 And He spoke many things to them in parables....".

Introduction and Review:
Today we conclude our study of "Where to find Jesus' parables".  So far we have seen where to find 36 of the 52 parables. This blogger felt it necessary that since we have been looking at Jesus' parables, to actually give scripture references for the reader whose curiosity might be piqued. For today's post we will be drawing from the resource produced by Holman publishers entitled: "Bible Atlas with Charts and Reconstructions". The reason for this choice is because of its thoroughness and fairly recent date of publication.What follows below is a listing of the final 16 of Jesus' parables, with scripture references, as taken from the just mentioned resource. In all there are 52 parables of Jesus.  It is hoped that perhaps the reader will look at one of the below parables to see what Jesus is teaching. 

1. The unjust steward. Luke 16:1-9

2. The rich man and Lazarus (Note: I would treat this not just as a parable). Luke 16:19-31
