When delving into the parables of Christ, Morgan realized that a discussion of the parabolic method is vital. In The Parables of the Kingdom, he begins with just that. Continuing with a discussion of the parables in the gospel of Matthew, he covers eight parables and their meaning in our lives today.

“The purpose of the parable is that of revelation by illustration, and the method is always intended to aid and never to hinder understanding.” (Page 17)

“The second thing in this parable which we have met with before, is the man. In each case he has been the King Himself—the sower of the seed in the first parable, the man who sowed the good seed in the second, and again, the man sowing the mustard seed. The man, then, in this parable who finds the treasure and then hides it, is the Son of Man Himself.” (Pages 134–135)

“The seven parables related in this chapter cannot be regarded as a collection made by the evangelist, as related to one subject, the Kingdom of Heaven and its development; they are clearly indicated by verse 53 to have been all spoken on one and the same occasion,* and form indeed a complete and glorious whole in their inner and deeper sense.” (Page 10)

“Let us first inquire into the meaning of the word parable. Literally, it is a throwing or placing of things side by side, with the suggestion of comparison. Something is placed by the side of something else, with the intention of explaining the one by the other.” (Pages 13–14)

“We must watch for similarity of principle and disparity of detail.” (Page 17)

G. Campbell Morgan (1863–1945) was a pastor and leading Bible scholar. He was a contemporary of Rodney “Gipsy” Smith and preached his first sermon at age 13. A few years after Morgan was ordained to the Congregational ministry, D. L. Moody invited him to teach at the Moody Bible Institute. Morgan became the director of Northfield Bible Conference after Moody.

He was the pastor of Westminster Chapel in London from 1904 to 1919 and then from 1933 to 1943, pausing for a brief period to work at Biola in Los Angeles. In 1939, Morgan began to mentor Martyn Lloyd-Jones, who would eventually become his successor at Westminster Chapel.

Morgan’s essay entitled The Purposes of the Incarnation is included in a collection called The Fundamentals, a set of 90 essays that is widely considered to be the foundation of the modern Fundamentalist movement. Several of Morgan’s writings are in G. Campbell Morgan Collection (30 vols.), including The Analyzed Bible, Discipleship, The True Estimate of Life and How to Live, and many more. He is also the author of God’s Perfect Will and The Crises of the Christ.

    One of my favorite books in my library. We used this as a text in a course on the parables of Jesus at Long Island Bible Institute. Definitely worth adding to logos library.
