Have you ever watched those TV documentaries that unlock some deep, dark secret? Maybe it’s the secret of King Tut’s tomb; or the secret life of an underworld crime boss. Whatever the topic, the point is to understand something that has remained a mystery for a long time. How do they do it? By carefully finding and analyzing evidence.

This parable has a lot to show us about what it means to live in this wicked world as a child of God.
