The Kingdom Parables (Matthew 13) are a prophetic timeline of all church history from the 1st century to the Present. This is an amazing and incredible study for we can clearly see Jesus giving commendation, encouragement and criticism to the churches of each age throughout history, starting with the apostolic age, then to the church of the persecuted age, then to the Imperial Church, then to the Papacy, then to the Protestant & Denominational churches, then to the missionaries and non-denominational churches and then finally to the apostate church. If Jesus had given his Kingdom Parables in any other order, this prophetic property wouldn't apply.
