I found this rather peculiar analogy in a sermon by Stuart Robinson:

For the exposition of the nature and laws of his kingdom may be said to be the chief burden of his discourses. Among these we naturally turn first to the Parables; for they may be termed emphatically, Christ’s discourses on the constitution of his kingdom. In more than one respect they are analogous to the disquisitions in the papers of the “Federalist” on the Constitution of the American Republic.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that most things can be analogous to each other in some manner or another. Establishing the validity of the connection in the mind of your listeners/readers is the real task.
