What are parable chapters in the Bible? In simple terms, parallel chapters in the Bible begin with a prophecy in the Bible. Then the prophecy is combined with the recorded fulfillment in the Bible. When the chapters are combined, they will show exactly how both chapters cover the same subject and theme. Parallel chapters are the highest form of Bible Study I know of. Parallel chapters remove all the guess work from prophecies because the inspired Word from God covers both the prophecy and its fulfillment. In other words, parallel chapters provided the evidence this world needs to know that only an Infinite God could have written the Bible.
This book on Revelation does not contain a lot of parallel chapters from other books in the Bible, but this book provides details showing how chapters inside Revelation parallel one another. Anyone who has read The Book of Revelation from beginning to end has seen how details have been repeated. An author repeats details because they are important. Jesus repeated details because they are a matter of enteral life and death. When we combine the information Jesus repeated, we see a much broader view of the story at hand. The prophecies in Revelation are revealed within Revelation. There is no reason to add or subtract any information from the Book of Revelation. The answers have been there for over two thousand years.
Look back at the first twelve chapters in Revelation. As a whole, they are a warning. They are also a tool and instruction manual for those who carry God's seal. Revelation is a book designed to teach Jesus’ disciples how to read and interpret scripture. Jesus explained how to read and understand scripture. After telling His disciples the parable about the seeds and how they are scattered in different ground, Jesus explained each of those symbols and their meaning. Jesus revealed their meaning. After explaining that story, Jesus spent weeks showing His disciples living examples often referred to acted parables. Those acted parables were a series of events designed to emphasize lessons that opened the pages, words, and stories in scripture to the disciples. The information Jesus gave His disciples should have been enough for them to read and understand the prophecies about Jesus, and see how He would be arrested, tried, and condemned by the priesthood of that time. Also how Jesus would face three days in the grave and raise from the dead. All of that information was in the scriptures for generations. Jesus showed His disciples how to read those stories and understand the symbols. Jesus went as far as explaining His arrest, execution, and resurrection to the disciples a number of times. But something held those disciples back. Something stopped their learning. What was it?
