This book was originally written in stages as individual articles from 2004-2009. It was published as a
complete E-book in 2009 in PDF format. As of August 2013, I have begun to re-publish the book as
separate pdf's in a newly revised edition available below. I may also release it as a printed book in the
future (God willing), with the addition of a new chapter on The Hidden Prophecies Of The Seven Feasts
revealing the typological and historical fulfillment of the Feasts of the Lord.
In The Secrets Of The Parables, I consider in quite some detail the various aspects of some of the key
parables that Jesus taught concerning the subject of the kingdom of heaven, particularly as it related
to the nation of Israel and the end of the Old Covenant system, and the new establisment of Christ's
spiritual kingdom. I also consider the enduring spiritual elements that are layered throughout Jesus'
teaching that still apply today.
The original appendix entitled The Kingdom of Heaven & the Millennial Reign has now been
completely rewritten as an additional chapter (Dec. 2014). The whole subject of prophecy is also
interlaced throughout the book, being viewed from a Consistent Premillennial Preterist perspective, with
an emphasis on the context of Jesus' hebraic teaching in 1st century Palestine, and the uniqueness of
the era leading up to 70 AD.
