Parable

c.1325, “saying or story in which something is expressed in terms of something else,” from O.Fr. parable, from L. parabola “comparison,” from Gk. parabole “a comparison, parable,” lit. “a throwing beside,” from para- “alongside” + bole “a throwing, casting,” related to ballein “to throw.” Replaced O.E. bispell. In V.L. parabola took on the meaning “word,” hence It. parlare, Fr. parler “to speak.”
