A Lamp on a stand, Luke 8:16-18

In the eleventh parable in Luke Jesus uses a lamp.

A parable is a brief, succinct story, in prose or verse, that illustrates a moral or religious lesson.

This parable was about making your light shine and what is hidden will be exposed.

Jesus was teaching in parables so the people listing would not understand what he was teaching unless God the father revealed it to them.

Background Reading:

A Lamp on a Stand

8:16 “No one lights a lamp and hides it under a bowl or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a lamp stand so that those who come in will see the light. 17 There is nothing hidden that won’t be revealed, and there is nothing secret that won’t become known and come to light. 18 So pay attention to how you listen, because to the one who has something, more will be given. However, from the one who doesn’t have, even what he thinks he has will be taken away from him.”
