4:10 Why Yeshua speaks in parables

(Mat. 13:10-17, Luke 8:9-10)

10And when the crowd had left, the twelve apprentices asked him about the parables. 11And he told them, “You’ve been given understanding about God’s kingdom, but for others, they’ll get it in parables

12[ref]so that when they look they might see but not perceive,

and when they listen, they might hear but not understand,

otherwise they might turn from their sins and be forgiven.

4:12: Isa 6:9-10 (LXX).

10And when he_became down/against/according_to alone, they with the twelve about him were_asking him the parables.
11And he_was_saying to_them:
The mystery of_the kingdom of_ the _god has_been_given to_you_all, but to_those who are outside, all the things is_becoming in parables, 12in_order_that seeing, they_may_be_seeing and may_ not _perceive, and hearing, they_may_be_hearing and may_ not _be_understanding, lest they_may_turn_back and it_may_be_forgiven to_them.
