the parable of the sower mat 13
THE PARABLE OF THE SOWERMat. 13

1That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. 2Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. 3Then he told them many things in parables, saying:

the parable of the sower mat 131
THE PARABLE OF THE SOWERMat. 13

"A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9He who has ears, let him hear."

understanding the parable
UNDERSTANDING THE PARABLE

The farmer: Jesus

The seed: the God’s word

1. Some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.

2. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.

3. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants.

4. Other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.

the meaning of the parable
THE MEANING OF THE PARABLE

18"Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. 22The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful. 23But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown."

the meaning of the parable1
THE MEANING OF THE PARABLE

First Situation:

When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path.

Seed sown along the path and eaten by the birds: Lack of understanding of the message about the kingdom makes the seed vulnerable to Satan’s stealing.

THE MEANING OF THE PARABLE

Second situation:

The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.

Rocky places: the seed withers because of troubles and persecutions. This happens because there is no root.

THE MEANING OF THE PARABLE

Third situation: the one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.

The seed is choked by the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth and does not prosper.

The thorns are the worries of life and the love for money.

THE MEANING OF THE PARABLE

Fourth situation:

“The one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.“

The seed only prospers on the good soil: that understands the message of the kingdom.

the secret mark 4 11 12
The SECRET: Mark 4:11-12
  • "The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables 12so that, 'they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!
the secret
THE SECRET
  • The secret of the Kingdom of God is only for the disciples
  • For the Pharisees was taught in parables so they could not understand them
don t you understand
DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND?
  • Mk.4:13Then Jesus said to them, "Don't you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable?
  • THE UNDERSTANDING OF THIS FIRST PARABLE IS REQUIRED TO UNDERSTAND ALL THE PARABLESOF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • IT IS LIKE “PARABLES 101 COURSE”
