II Timothy 3:16 says "All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." which makes it virtually impossible to choose a "favorite!" However, if "I" would "have to choose" a "favorite parable from Jesus" it would be the one in which "religion" has erred in John Chapter 4!
The Woman at the Well: (I will paraphrase for lack of space!) Jesus meet a Samaritan woman at the well which is a parable in which Jesus afforded "eternal life" to ALL (Fulfilling "law")! He also told us that (v23) ",,,true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth.." which is the ONLY was we should worship him today!
Now, Jesus (knowing the life of the Samaritan woman) asked her to "go call your husband" (v16) in which she answered "I have no husband" and Jesus agreed (v17). Jesus told her in v18 that she "had had five husbands, and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband; saidst thou truly." V21 tells us what "religion" overlooked when Jesus told her "...Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall NEITHER in this mountain, NOR yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father." If Jesus said she would "NEITHER/NOR" worship the Father," why does religion say "She was Saved?"
Let's move on! And to farther reveal that "she was not saved," v29 (after being told by Jesus in v26 "...I that speak unto thee am he," she goes into the city and asked "men," "Come, see a man, who told me all things that ever I did" (Here's the point, she asked "men" after being told in v26) Is not this the Christ?" Why would one have to ask "men" if she "knew" Christ? Her question fulfilled what Jesus told her in v21, she would "NEITHER/NOR" worship the Father!" V39 says some believed because of her saying "He told me all that I ever did" but went to hear His Words and "then" believed "for they heard him for themselves" (v42)! Jesus said she would "NEITHER/NOR worship the Father" or did He lie?
Now on to the parable or "hidden mystery!" Don't you see that "Marriage" has to be "Holy" and "in the Lord" (I Cor 7:39)? If husband dies while you are "in the Lord" you are free to marry another! Well, if the second "Marriage" should be "in the Lord," don't you think the first "Marriage" should be also? It should, otherwise; we are just like the Woman at the well with husband that "we" have joined together and not God; therefore, the one now with is not your husband!
