Do we understand God? Why did Jesus speak with parables?

Mat 13:34 Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the multitudes; and without a parable, he didn’t speak to them,

Mat 13:10 10 The disciples came, and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11 He answered them, “To you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is not given to them. 12 For whoever has, to him will be given, and he will have abundance, but whoever doesn’t have, from him will be taken away even that which he has. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they don’t see, and hearing, they don’t hear, neither do they understand. 14 In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says, ‘By hearing you will hear, And will in no way understand; Seeing you will see, And will in no way perceive:

Jesus spoke with parables and said it was because people would “in no way understand”. People are baffled after reading the Bible but think they now understand the parables, because they have been written by the apostles.

The Bible has been concealed by God and Jesus and as a result of this people in churches have been imprisoned for centuries. The priests have intimidated them into human ruins who believe they will fall into the fire of hell after the last judgment. There have been long and bloody wars between Protestants and Catholics and also inside each denomination because the Bible has not been understood in the same way. God has sealed certain things. For example, the time of the second coming of Jesus. I believe many questions that are difficult to understand will open up when you explore them vigorously. This is certainly what God appreciates.
