I'm doing a lesson in a week on parables and am looking for different interpretations on them. If you have any insight for the parables of Jesus, please share. Some of what I've found: Elder Yang on the Unjust Steward John Welch on the God Samaritan For the Great Supper (Matthew 22:1-14) the three excuses to not go to the supper were had new land, had new oxen, just got married. This can be read as people don't come to God since they care more about investments, possessions, others. For the Rich Man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) the rich man could be an actual High Priest (Caiaphas) who was learned but no wisdom or understanding//Lazarus could refer to Eliezer, Abraham's servant who was denied inheritance (Gen 15:4), but now being on Abraham's bosom meant opening the gospel to all The Prodigal Son could be the Gentiles and the first born the Jews.
