The Parable of the Pearl is sometimes referred to as the Parable of the Pearl of Great Price or The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value. At only two sentences and two verses, it’s a noticeably short parable. Jesus often utilized parables to explain intricate spiritual truths in understandable earthly terms, so that even the simplest of minds could grasp them.

A Pearl of Great Price and its Meaning

In this parable, Jesus illustrates the importance of His people to God and to Himself. Those who had lost their way were sought out by Christ with much effort – primarily, so too are God’s people; valuable in every sense – cherished possessions and treasured inheritance that bring glory to Him alone.

When Jesus says that the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, he is speaking of God. Furthermore, Jesus has just called God’s kingdom his kingdom. The fine pearl then is the Church, which is those who will repent and return to obeying God.

Jesus says that upon finding this valuable pearl, he gives up everything to obtain it…which is seen to be true by the sacrifice Jesus made. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
