Why Christ taught in parables.

hearing they may hear, and not understand; Is. 6.9.

“ lest at any time they should be converted, 26. M". 13. “ and their sins should be forgiven them. And Rom.11.8.

14“ in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias,

“ which saith, “By hearing ye shall hear, and * Is. 6. 9.

“ shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, Acts 28. 15" and shall not perceive: for this people's heart 26, 27,

“ is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of
“ hearing, and their eyes they have closed ; lest 14, 15.

at any time they should see with their eyes,
" and hear with their ears, and should under-

“ stand with their heart, and should be convert16 " ed, and I should heal them. But blessed are

your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for 17“ they hear. For verily I say unto you, f That Heb. 11. “ many prophets and righteous men have de-1.10, Ii.

11. “sired to see those things which ye see, and have “ not seen them ; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

“Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. Mk.4.14 “ The sower soweth the word. When any one M". 13. “ heareth the word of the kingdom, and under

19“ standeth it not, then cometh the wicked one,

“ and catcheth away that which was sown in

“ his heart. This is he which received seed by
20“ the way side. But he that received the seed

“ into stony places, the same is he that heareth
“ the word, and anon & with joy receiveth it ; Is. 58. 2.

21" yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth

“ for a while: for when tribulation or persecu-
“ tion ariseth because of the word, by and by

The parable of the tares,



A. D. 31. “ beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an

hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

“No man, when he hath lighted a candle, L. 8. “ covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under 16

a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that
“they which enter in may see the light. For 17
“ nothing is secret, that shall not be made
“ manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not

“ be known and come abroad. Take heed there- 18
“ fore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him
“shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from
6 him shall be taken even that which he seem-
“eth to have.”

Another parable put he forth unto them, say-M". 13.
ing, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto 24
“a man which sowed good seed in his field :
“ but while men slept, his enemy came and 25
“ sowed ? tares among the wheat, and went his

way. But when the blade was sprung up, 26
“ and brought forth fruit, then appeared the
“tares also. So the servants of the housholder 27
“ came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou
“ sow good seed in thy field ? from whence then
“ hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy 28
“ hath done this. The servants said unto him,
“ Wilt thou then that we go and gather them

up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather 29

up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with
" them. Let both grow together until the har- 30
“ vest: and in the time of harvest I will say to
“ the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares,

6 and bind them in bundles to burn them: but

gather the wheat into my barn.” And he said, Mk. 4.
“ So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should 26
“ cast seed into the ground; and should sleep, 27
“and rise night and day, and the seed should
“ spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
“ For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; 28
“ first the blade, then the ear, after that the

m “ the sickle, because the harvest is come.” M". 13. Another parable put he forth unto them, say

31 ing, “The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain "Is. 2.2,3.

“ of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed
32“ in his field: which indeed is the least of all

“ seeds : but when it is grown, it is the great-
“ est among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that
“ the birds of the air come and lodge in the
66 branches thereof."

Another parable spake he unto them; “The
kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which

a woman took, and hid in three measures of
34 “ meal, till the whole was leavened.” All these

things spake Jesus unto the multitude in paraMk. 4. bles; as they were able to hear it. But without 33, 34 a parable spake he not unto them: and when

they were alone, he expounded all things to his M". 13. disciples : that it might be fulfilled which was

35 spoken by the prophet, saying, 'I will open my•Ps 78. 2. mouth in parables; PI will utter things which "Rom. 16.

Col. 1. 26. Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house : and his disciples came

unto him, saying, ' Declare unto us the parable 37 of the tares of the field. He answered and said

unto them, “He that soweth the good seed is 38“ the Son of man; ' the field is the world; the 9 Ro.10.18.

“Have ye understood all these things?” They
say unto him, Yea, Lord. Then said he unto 52
them, “ Therefore every scribe which is instruct-
“ ed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto

a man that is an housholder, which bringeth

And it came to pass, that when Jesus had 63
finished these parables, he departed thence.

50. Christ stilleth the tempest. M".8.

Now when Jesus saw great multitudes about A. D. 31. him, he gave commandment to depart unto the 19 other side. And a certain scribe came, and said

unto him, Master, I will follow thee whither-
20 soever thou goest. And Jesus saith unto him,

“ The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air
have nests; but the Son of man hath not where
“ to lay his head.”

And another of his disciples said unto him,
Lord, a suffer me first to go and bury my father. See

22 But Jesus said unto him, “Follow me; and let 20. L. 9. 60“ the dead bury their dead: but go thou and

preach the kingdom of God.” 61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow See

thee; but let me first go bid them farewell,
62 which are at home at my house. And Jesus

said unto him, “ No man, having put his hand
“ to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the

kingdom of God.”
MW. 8. And when he was entered into a ship, his

23 disciples followed him, and they launched forth. L. 8. 22 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the M". 8. sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with

24 the waves. Mk. 4. And he was in the hinder part of the ship,

38 asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and

say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we 39 perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind,

and said unto the sea, “Peace, be still.” And

the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, “Why are ye so fear-
41 “ ful? how is it that ye have no faith ?" And

they feared exceedingly, and said one to another,
What manner of man is this, that even the wind
and the sea obey him?
