Parable of the sower

Parable of the sower in english

«And a great multitude came together, and those who came to him from every city, and he said to them in a parable, ‘The sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air ate it up. Other seed fell on the rock; and when it sprang up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. Some fell among thorns, and the thorns that grew up with it choked it. And some fell on good soil, and sprang up and bore fruit a hundredfold. And as he spake these things, he spake with a loud voice, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.»

According to the above passages, the seed spoken of is THE WORD OF GOD or «the word of the kingdom.» However, this Word does not have the same result everywhere, since its efficacy depends on the ground where it falls. One of the possible types of terrain is «by the wayside», which, according to the interpretation of the parable, is composed of people who, although they hear the Word of God, «do not understand it». What is meant by «do not understand it» we will see from the context. The Greek word translated «understand» in the above passage is the verb «suniemi» which is used 6 times in Matthew 13, 5 times as far as the parable is concerned. So in Matthew 13:13-15 it reads:

Verses on the parable of the sower

A sower went out to sow. As he scattered the seed, some of it fell by the roadside; it was trampled under foot, and the birds ate it up. Some fell on the stones, and when it sprouted, the plants withered for lack of moisture. Some fell among thorns, which grew up with the seed and choked it. But some of it fell on good soil; so it sprouted and produced a hundredfold harvest. Luke 8:4-8, NIV

Some people hear the gospel but doubt and irreverence are too great. Just as the seeds on the road never had a chance to touch the ground, the word in people who have the disposition to completely deny God never reaches the heart. Another barrier in this type of person may be fear or deep scars that affect their thinking and feeling.

These people hear God’s message but are distracted by the attractive things of the world. They are more appreciative of their self-image, their job, where they live, their friendships, etc. They can also be people who are stuck in a situation that consumes every aspect of their being. Obsessions are thorns.

The 4 earths of the parable of the sower

So is the kingdom of God, as when a man sows seed in the ground. Whether he sleeps or watches, night or day, the seed sprouts and grows without his knowing how, for the earth bears fruit of itself: first the grass, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear; and when the fruit is ripe, immediately the sickle is thrust in, for the harvest has come.

This parable can be related to the parable of the sower,[1] with the difference that in the parable of the seed that grows the seed represents the Kingdom of God itself, which grows by God’s intervention and not man’s, and at its own pace.[2] The parable of the seed that grows represents the Kingdom of God itself, which grows by God’s intervention and not man’s, and at its own pace.[2] The parable of the seed that grows represents the Kingdom of God.
