    Anytime Jesus was asked to explain something he would do it using a parable. he would tell a story and the story was an earthly teaching or story with a heavenly meaning and that would explain it but then he would have to explain the parable to them. You can find it written where it is said he is the word of God or at least that is his name. It is said that he always spoke in parables and at no time did he not speak in parables.The new testament is his body and threw it the Lord speaks and teaches us. I believe every thing in the bible has spiritual understanding and that is heavenly teachings so to me it is all parables . Even the parables in there are part of a larger parable.

   Its like this. The story goes Jesus walked on water and went to his disciples and their ship and calmed the storms and waves or sea. Some times like Peter had as great catch of fish. But Peter became the Catholic Church and a fisher of men and that church had its great catch of people. The church is like a great ship out on the sea. The sea is the sea of gentiles or iniquity. The ship goes threw great waves of terror and storms of discontent in the sea of disbelief. When we study the word we put ourselves in Gods hands or take his hands and like peter when we take his hand we do not sink into that sea. When he is in the church he calms the storms and these are spiritual things that happen and we can see that he is with us and when we have the new testament church he is with us. the NT is his body and we are his body, the church. He is the head of us. And do we qualify as his church, us believers here in the forum. I hope so.

  All in all The Lord has shown be all the scriptures have Spiritual meanings and he has taught me the meanings of almost everything now in the scriptures. Did the things really happen, I can,t say for sure, I believe what they teach and believe they did but i say they are living parables. and the Spiritual understanding of them is the living word alive and happening every day.

A real event can also be a parable.
Hagar and Sarah and their sons were real people, but Paul says that they also "represent two covenants." (Galatians 4:21-31)
"My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness." (II Corinthians 12:9)

     Yes , I can see that their sons became the nations and those people live from the life the sons lives. Can you see that ?

If they didn't happen any lessons to be learnt are like aseops fables. A generaly good idea about behaviour wrapped up in a story.

Your problem Colin is that historianshave reasons to believe that the stories recorded in the bible did happen. eg Luke is regarded as always being accurate when he mentions places and political titles. He was an eyewitness  and got his facts right.

It follows that if he is right about places and the titles of political leaders that he is also right about the strange mitaculus events he records.

If you think otherwise pleas provide your evidence.

     It appears to me that Luke himself chooses to use the word undertaken as if to say they we undertakers of the word or the word is given in a dead image. Then before he gives his account he says those people writing the accounts were both eyewitnesses and servants as to say they wrote as in bondage or free. The word is both death and life and what is life if not the continue of them even after death. They, the writers are and have been dead for two thousand years but yet the word is them speaking and the book of luke is luke, John is John, Mathew is Mathew speaking to us and their word is their body and the flesh is dead but the spirit of them is alive as is the Spirit of the word. The stories may be true but given in a dead image as they have been and lived so long back there. The fleshy and the letter or written word is earthly words and as parables earthly teachings with Spiritual or heavenly meanings.

      The word always gives you to understand like John. He starts off, The word was with God and them he says it was God, Two accounts, With god and God, God is Spirit and is no flesh. The word is given in the flesh, earthly teachings but the Spirit is God.

Colin,
        "They, the writers are and have been dead for two thousand years but yet the word is them speaking and the book of luke is luke, John is John, Mathew is Mathew speaking to us and their word is their body and the flesh is dead but the spirit of them is alive as is the Spirit of the word. "

They wrote as the Spirit encouraged them, recording the events they witnessed or researched, they wrote using their personality to record the message God wanted to deliver through them.

If anyone wants to learn about God they read the bible and use it to check any dream or spirit given message. If a dream etc is contary to what the bible teaches it is not from God.
