Parables and meanings for those who see and hear…

Jesus the Parable of the soils. (Matthew 13:1-9)

And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have even what he has will be taken away from him. Therefore I speak in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah (6:9,10) is fulfilled, which says:

Hearing you will hear and shall not

understand,

And seeing you will see

and not perceive;

For the hearts of this

people have grown dull.

Their ears are hard of hearing,

And their eyes they have

closed.

Lest they should see with

their eyes and hear with their ears,

Lest they should

understand with their

hearts and turn,

So that I should heal

them.’

But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear; for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.

Matthew 13:18-23  Parable of Sower explained.

(Matthew 13:25-35)  Parable of the Wheat and Tares, The mustard Seed, Parable of the Leaven.

(Matthew 13:36-43)  Parable of the Tares explained.

(Matthew 13:44-53)  Parable of the Hidden Treasure, Parable of the Pearl of Great Price, Parable of the Dragnet, Parable of the Householder.

(Matthew 13:54-58) Rejection at Nazareth. (Mark 6:1-6); (Luke 4:16-30)

Do you see, hear, and accept the Truth. Even without seeing, by grace through faith we believe. Only because He chose who He wanted to see before the foundation of the world.

Matthew, Mark and Luke have more parables a few are repeated from their views. Luke has 17 parables not in the other Gospels. And Mark has two not in Matthew and Luke.
