Scripture Reference:

Description: This image depicts various parables of Jesus. In the middle to the left are the parables of the wicked husbandmen, the rich fool, the Good Shepherd, the Sheep Gate, and the Weeds. In the middle toward the top are the parables of the Sower, the Good Samaritan, and the Fig Tree. In the middle at the bottom is the healing on the Sabbath with men hauling an ox out of a well, and the parables of the householder, the Prodigal Son, and the Wedding Feast, and the Rich Man and Lazarus. In the middle toward the right are the parables of the ten virgins, and the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. In the middle is Jesus teaching on John the Baptist and the Little Apocalypse, and the parables of the Lost Sheep. At the top is a lamp symbolizing the light of the world from the Sermon on the Mount, a table symbolizing the table Jesus references when speaking to the Syrophoenician woman, and the parables of the talents, the unmerciful servant, and the unjust steward or shrewd manager. In the top-left corner is the parable of the Lost Coin and the teaching of the light and the bushel. To the left Jesus’ teaching on worry is symbolized by the birds of the air and the lilies of the field, and the parable of the yeast or the leaven is represented. In the bottom-left corner John the Baptist's head is placed on a platter after his decapitation. At the bottom are Jesus and the woman caught in adultery.
