Ray Bentley, August 26, 2018, Matthew 13:1-23
Jesus told many stories, often in the form of parables. A parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. The fact that Jesus can use a SEED to explain the Word of God or a FEAST to describe Salvation tells us we that the book of nature reflects the Word of God in a very powerful way. Parables both reveal and conceal, and expose our hearts. Soil is a great picture of the human heart and Jesus used it to explain the condition of the human heart and soul.
