Catchy commercials that sneak up and surprise you with humor or a clever twist are often the ones most talked about the day after the big game.
Jesus would make a great advertizing consultant. The parables he told wove elements and events that were common during the time He was on earth. He utilized clever irony that was caught by all who heard his stories. The truth inflamed and infuriated those whose follies were featured. It resonated among those who knew of the hypocrisy, but were powerless to say or do anything about the situation.
The Berean Bible Study Resources lists 40 of Jesus parables, groups them by common themes, shows what gospels the parables are in, and asks questions that could be used in a study.
