Parables of tares

Parables of Tares

  • Misunderstood and misused

  • About kingdom of heaven on earth

    • Kingdom of heaven is the church, Matt 16:18-19 (Col 1:13)

    • Christians are unique in this world (cf. Jno 17:11, 15)

    • This parable presents the problem of evil and our victory over it in Christ


Explanation 36 43

Explanation (36-43)

  • The field is the world, 13:38

    • “His” field (Christ’s), 13:24, 27

    • He has ownership of this world, 1 Cor 10:26 (Psa 24:1)

    • Called “His kingdom”, 13:41


Explanation 36 431

Explanation (36-43)

  • Two Sowers

    • Son of Man (Christ), 13:37

    • The Devil (enemy), 13:39, 28 (“His enemy”, 13:25)

    • Nature of the enemy:

      • Cunning: “While men slept”

      • Cowardly: Not openly, but under cover of darkness


Explanation 36 432

Explanation (36-43)

  • Clash of good vs. evil in this world:

    • Father vs. World (1 Jno 2:15-16)

    • Spirit vs. the Flesh (Gal 5:17)

    • Son vs. Satan (Gen 3:15)


Explanation 36 433

Explanation (36-43)

  • Two Products

    • Wheat(29): Sons of Kingdom (38)

      • “Good seed” growing in the world

    • Tares(25): Sons of Satan (38) Jno 8:44; Eph 2:2-3; 5:6

      • Darnel: Weed grass that looks very much like wheat until it is mature, when a great difference is revealed

      • Used for chicken feed or burned


Explanation 36 434

Explanation (36-43)

  • Two Questions

    • “Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?” 13:27

      • Problem of evil in the world (its origin and its continuance)

      • Enemy introduced the evil; not God

      • Be concerned about victory over evil rather than full explanation of it (Matt 5:13-16)


Explanation 36 435

Explanation (36-43)

  • Two Questions

    • “Do you want us then to go and gather them up?” 13:28

      • Such would be beyond the wisdom and ability of His servants (29)

      • Separation will happen at the time of harvest (30)


Explanation 36 436

  • The Harvest, 13:30, 39

    • End of the age, Matt 13:49 (25:31-32)

    • Reapers: Angels (Matt 25:31)

      • All that offend and those who practice lawlessness, 13:41

    • Two results:

      • Wheat (sons of the kingdom): Gathered to heaven, 13:30, 43

      • Tares (sons of the wicked one): Punished in hell, 13:30, 40-42
