How to Study the Bible

Scholars spend years carefully analysing verses in the Bible. There are text books by the hundreds as a result. But the Bible is meant to be easy for the general layman to understand. The common people heard Jesus gladly, and He only taught in parables.

Could it be that parables are more prevalent than we thought in both the New and even all through the Old Testaments?
