The parables of Jesus Christ are among His best-known and most-loved teachings. After centuries of study, what is yet to be discovered in these lessons from the Lord?

For those who search these scriptural accounts seeking personal applications, new discoveries always await. View the parables with fresh eyes in The Parables of Jesus, a unique textual and visual presentation of the familiar narratives woven and interwoven by the Master.

Each story is included here in its entirety, alongside indepth studies of the setting, context, language, and culture in which that parable was originally situated and shared.

Above all, each parable is positioned within God the Father's great plan of salvation. Knowing that encompassing doctrine is the key to finding the Savior's love in these treasured instructions, both individually and interactively.

To inspire deeper insights and personal connections with the parables, the words of Christ are depicted in an original series of striking paintings by Latter-day Saint artist Jorge Cocco Santángelo. With imagery and inspiring artistic commentary that transcends the ordinary, this visually stunning uniting of word and art paves the way for personal and family applications of the parables as never before.

A Unique and Powerful Masterpiece

The Parables of Jesus: Revealing the Plan of Salvation is a masterpiece of scholarship and spiritual insight accompanied by stunning artistic portrayals of some of the most central teachings of Jesus’ ministry. While the various interpretations presented by the authors reflect a lifetime of Biblical scholarship, the book is far from an arms-length, academic commentary. Rather, the illuminating text is evidence of their life-long pursuit of a deeply personal understanding and application of the sacred underpinnings of these familiar teachings. The unique collaboration between the Welches and the brilliant Cocco Santángelo is noteworthy in that his masterful sketches and paintings are not presented as illustrations, but as a corresponding visual embodiment of the principles and symbols revealed in the text. The impact of his art is profound, particularly as accompanied by Herman du Toit’s exceptional art commentary. In addition to everything else if offers, for me the book is a masterclass in how to approach gospel study. My instinct was to place it on a shelf next to my most treasured volumes where the beautiful cover would not be damaged, but the next day I left the cover on the shelf and carried the book to a table where it now sits next to my scriptures with a bookmark in the chapter that corresponds to my current study. I would encourage all who desire to deepen their understanding of the Savior’s teachings to do the same.

Like a parable, the Welch's have created a multifaceted work; from describing the settings and determining the prompt, to the nuance of language and input from ancient texts and ancient and modern prophets. The Parables of Jesus: Revealing the Plan of Salvation truly illuminates the plan of salvation in Jesus’ parables. A highlight is Cocco’s beautiful artwork, which enables us to see as well as hear these teachings. Quite an accomplishment.

No ordinary book about the parables! This book masterly combines a faithful but in depth study of the New Testament parables of Jesus with the exquisite paintings of Jorge Cocco Santángelo that highlight not only the parables' place in the teachings, but also highlights their place in the Savior's teaching the great Eternal Plan. For art- and scripture- lovers alike.

Rather than a simple retelling of the Parables of Jesus in the New Testament, this book combines a study of the parables within the pattern of the overall teachings of Jesus and in the context of the Plan of Salvation. The Content is provided by outstanding theologians, illustrated by the unique art of Jorge Cocco Santángelo with art commentary by Herman DuToit.
