Matthew 13:35

American Standard Version (ASV)

35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.

why is it that he need to say it in parables and utter things hidden?

why in parables (symbolism),
an inability to identify with the new thought
enough to forgo the comfortable mindless rut,
it is difficult sometimes to bear the truth head on

To communicate with the physical world we use lineare communicate with the invisible world we use symbolism...thoughts, words and deeds...parables act as double doorways into the blueprint of the invisible world

Jesus spoke in parables so that only those that had ears to hear and eyes to see could understand him. In otherwords he spoke symbolicaly so that those that were ready to hear and see what he had to say and show would get his message.

One of the bigest reasons Jesus spoke in parables is that had he spoken in plain understandable to all language he would have been crucified long before he was and he wanted to let as many as possible to get his message.

He hid the knowledge in parables from the fundation of the world (the majorities) so as not to throw his pearls of wisdom before swine (those that wouldnt have understood and would have caused trouble).
