Dear Sorin:

When Jesus spoke to the multitudes, when he TAUGHT the multitudes, then He used parables. You will see the term "taught" over and over.  Or the statement that "He ANSWERED....".

But there were many times when Jesus just ANSWERED  a question or made a statement, in which He was not giving a parable. Here is just one example:

Mat 15:28  "Then Jesus ANSWERED and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour."

This was not a parable that He gave to her.

God be with you,
