Slide 1

Jesus told the crowd listening on the shores of Lake Galilee another parable (the parable of the weeds): – Slide 1

Slide 2

‘The kingdom of heaven is like a person who sowed good seed in his field. – Slide 2

Slide 3

‘But while everyone was sleeping, an enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. – Slide 3

Slide 4

‘When the plants sprouted and bore grain, then the weeds also appeared. – Slide 4

Slide 5

‘So the slaves of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Then where did the weeds come from?’ – Slide 5

Slide 6

‘He said, “An enemy has done this.” So the slaves replied, “Do you want us to go and gather them?” But he said, “No, since in gathering the weeds you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. – Slide 6

Slide 7

‘At harvest time I will tell the reapers, “First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned, but then gather the wheat into my barn.”’ – Slide 7

Slide 8

Jesus then told another parable (parable of the mustard seed). – Slide 8

Slide 9

‘The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. – Slide 9

Slide 10

‘It is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest garden plant and becomes a tree, so that the wild birds come and nest in its branches.’ – Slide 10

Slide 11

Jesus continued with yet another parable (parable of the yeast). – Slide 11

Slide 12

‘The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of flour until all the dough had risen.’ – Slide 12

Slide 13

Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the crowds. He did not speak to them without a parable. – Slide 13

Slide 14

This fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet:‘I will open my mouth in parables, I will announce what has been hidden from the foundation of the world’ (Psalm 78:2). – Slide 14

Slide 15

Then Jesus left the crowds and went into the house. – Slide 15

Slide 16

And His disciples came to Him saying, ‘Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.’ – Slide 16

Slide 17

Jesus answered, ‘The field is the world and the good seed are the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. – Slide 17

Slide 18

‘The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. – Slide 18

Slide 19

‘As the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be at the end of the age. – Slide 19

Slide 20

‘The Son of Man will send His angels, and they will gather from His kingdom everything that causes sin as well as all lawbreakers. – Slide 20

Slide 21

‘They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. – Slide 21

Slide 22

‘Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. The one who has ears had better listen!’ – Slide 22
