“This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.”
King James Version (KJV)
10:6 They - The Pharisees, to whom our Lord more immediately spake, as appears from the close of the foregoing chapter.
Joh 10:6 This parable spoke Jesus to them. The Greek word "paroimia" rendered here "parable" is not so rendered elsewhere. It is rather a simile.
