Each chapter reflects on a selected scripture passage, considering what it would have meant for the people who first heard it. This original understanding to the entire gospel setting and the social context of the Roman Empire.

John McLaughlin then discusses how we might apply the parable today. Professor McLaughlin emphasizes a number of points regarding the Gospel parables.
