HELPS Lexicon excerpt

3850 parabolē (from 3844/pará, "close beside, with" and 906/bállō, "to cast") – a parable; a teaching aid cast alongside the truth being taught.  This casts additional light by using an arresting or familiar analogy, (which is often fictitious or metaphorical, but not necessarily).
