SEVEN PARABLES OF JESUS (the way the historical Jesus likely spoke them)
There was a man who found treasure in a field, which he covered up; then he went and sold all that he had and bought that field.
There was a merchant who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all he had and bought it.
There was a man who took a grain of mustard seed and sowed it in his garden, and it became a shrub, and the birds made nests in its shade.
There was a shepherd who had a hundred sheep, and one of them went astray. He left the ninety-nine on the hills and looked for that one.
There was a woman who took leaven, and hid it in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened.
There was a man who went out to sow, and as he sowed, some seed fell on the road, other seed fell on rocky ground, and other seed fell on thorns, and other seed fell on good soil.
There was a woman who had ten silver coins, and she lost one. She lit a lamp and swept diligently looking for that one.
