They talk about Jesus in a large crowds and how people will not listen to Jesus even with silence. God put these parables out for us, so that we could understand his spiritual lessons through his stories in the bible. Mark starts off with Jesus getting in a boat to go out onto a lake, because the crowds around were too large for him to stand in them. People probably ask why Jesus couldn’t just fly or speak really loud. But the reason…
