A Comparison of Parables – The Sower

The Parable of the Sower

Matthew 13:1-23
Mark 4:1-8, 13-20
Luke 8:4-8, 11-15

The Gospel of the Kailedy (Chapter 18)
When the boat drew into the shallows, some of those with Yahushua went to get food. And a crowd gathered about him, so Yahushua¬†told a parable often repeated. “A sower¬†went into his cornfield carrying seed in his apron, and he scattered it about so some fell in the open and was eaten by the birds. Other seed fell on stony ground and sprouted quickly, but as it could not put down roots, it quickly withered. Some fell among thistles, where it was smothered before reaching maturity. Still others fell on good ground and, having ripened, produced a bountiful harvest. This parable is simple to understand, and I will explain it to you. I am the Sower, and the seeds are my words. Some of you standing here in the open listen, but close your hearts to the message. With you, my words are like the seed eaten by the birds. With others my words are like the seed falling on stony ground, for though they receive them hopefully, they are weak willed and shallow minded. Thus, when their belief is tested, they give way immediately. Still others receive the words, but the message is like the seed sown among thistles; they hear and understand, but because of their daily cares or a craving for worldly things, the words of the message become overgrown and perish. Lastly, there are those who hear the words of the message and welcome them. It is in these that the bountiful harvest is produced.”
