The Parable of the Weeds April 13, 2018

Here are my thoughts on Matthew 13:24-30.

Summary: In this passage, Jesus tells another parable about a man who sows good seed in his field. Yet his enemy arrives at night and oversows his field with bastard wheat. His servants are taken aback upon their discovery of the bastard wheat, and they ask him if they should uproot it. He notes that good wheat might also be uprooted in the process. Instead, it would be better for them to wait for the harvest, when his reapers will:

  • burn the bastard wheat
  • gather the good wheat to his barn.

Thoughts: Jesus explicates this parable in Matthew 13:36-43, so I will defer my thoughts on this passage until the corresponding blog post.
