When crowds are large, it gets loud and harder to hear, but when Jesus is the speaker, people become silent and it’s effortless to hear, even still they do not listen to the wisdom of God. “Though hearing they do not hear or understand.” Matthew and mark are parables that are common with each other in the Gospels. They talk about Jesus in a large crowds and how people will not listen to Jesus even with silence.

I can understand why the people were asking because the parables are confusing in a way. Also, it does sound directed towards a specific group rather than all people.
