A fruitless fishing expedition gets turned around and yields great catch when Jesus told the weary, unsuccessful and disappointed fisherman to go back and cast their net in deeper water.

Jesus has the same prescription to seekers of spiritual fish but had largely remained unsuccessful, disappointed and tired.

Fish in deeper spiritual water.

Why Parables?

God is majestic, great, and wonderful. He must be approached and understood on his own terms. God in his infinite wisdom has chosen to speak to us through his Son Jesus. And Jesus spoke much in parables. Why parables? Bakit mga talinhaga ang ginamit ng Panginoon sa kanyang madalas na pakikipagtalstasan sa mga tao? Why did Jesus use a lot of parables instead of just plain, simple language? Why should we understand parables? Pag naunawaan natin ito, lalo nating mabubuksan ang hiwaga ng mga katuruan ng ating Panginoong Hesus.
