Dear Paul:

No, NOT "correct."  Jesus gave many parables without actually calling them parables:

Luke 15:3--"And He spake this [five-part] parable unto them, sayhing":

1.  "What MAN of you...." (Verse 5, the first parable).

2.  "Either WHAT WOMAN...." (Verse 8, the second parable, but not called a parable).

3.  "A CERTAIN MAN...." (Verse 11, the third parable, but not called a parable).

4.  "There was a CERTAIN RICH MAN...." (Chapt. 16:1, the fourth parable, but not called a parable).

5.  "There was A CERTAIN RICH MAN...." (Verse 19, the fifth parable, but not called a parable, because all five are part of the same ONE, FIVE-PART PARABLE).

And so "Lazarus and the Rich man" is most emphatically a PARABLE!

God be with you,

Ray

PS   I also give a dozens more reasons why Lazarus is a parable in my paper on this parable found on our home page.
