Yeshua’s Kin-dom of Heaven, Chapter 8
[Mt13:3-9, 24-30] 3 He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, “Behold, a farmer went out to sow. 4 As she sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn’t have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of earth. 6 When the sun had risen, they were scorched. Because they had no root, they withered away.
7 Others fell among thorns. The thorns grew up and choked them. 8 Others fell on good soil, and yielded fruit: some one hundred times as much, some sixty, and some thirty. 9 Anyone who has ears to hear, let them hear.”
24 He set another parable before them, saying, “The Kin-dom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while he slept, his enemy came and sowed darnel weeds also among the wheat, and went away. 26 But when the blade sprang up and produced fruit, then the darnel weeds appeared also. 27 The servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘"Master", didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where did these darnel weeds come from?’
28 “He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’
“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and gather them up?’
29 “But he said, ‘No, lest perhaps while you gather up the darnel weeds, you root up the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest time I will tell the reapers, “First, gather up the darnel weeds, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
[Mk4:30-32xCS] 30 He said, “How will we liken Heaven’s Kin-dom? Or with what parable will we illustrate it? 31 It’s like a grain of mustard seed, which, though it is less than all the seeds that are on the earth, 32 yet when it falls in the soil, grows up, and becomes greater than all the herbs, and spreads throughout the field, so that it becomes impossible to rid the field of it.”
[Mt13:33,44-50,36,51-52] 33 He spoke another parable to them. “The Kin-dom of Heaven is like yeast, which a woman took, and hid in three bushels of meal, until it was all leavened.”
44 “Again, the Kin-dom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.
45 “Again, the Kin-dom of Heaven is like a woman who is a merchant seeking fine pearls, 46 who having found one pearl of great price, she went and sold all that she had, and bought it.
47 “Again, the Kin-dom of Heaven is like a dragnet, that was cast into the sea, and gathered some fish of every kind, 48 which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach. They sat down, and gathered the good into containers, but the bad they threw away. 49 So will it be in the end of the world. The angels will come and separate the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.”
36 Then Yeshua sent the multitudes away, and went into the house. his students came to him. 51 Yeshua said to them, “Have you understood all these things?” They answered him, “Yes, Rabbi.”
52 He said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been made a student in the Kin-dom of Heaven is like a person who is a householder, who brings out of their treasure new and old things.”
