Parables of Tares
  • Misunderstood and misused

    • 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)
  • 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)

    • Son vs. Satan (Gen 3:15)
explanation 36 433
Explanation (36-43)

      • “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

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

    • 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
