As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy;

Tools specific to Mat 13:30

Tools specific to Mat 13:31

Mat 13:31

Another parable he put before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches."

Tools specific to Mat 13:33

He answered, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of man;

Tools specific to Mat 13:38

the field is the world, and the good seed means the sons of the kingdom; the weeds are the sons of the evil one,

Tools specific to Mat 13:39

Mat 13:39

and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the close of the age, and the reapers are angels.

Tools specific to Mat 13:40

Mat 13:40

Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age.

Tools specific to Mat 13:41

Mat 13:41

The Son of man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers,

Tools specific to Mat 13:42

Mat 13:42

and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.

Tools specific to Mat 13:43

Mat 13:43

Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

Tools specific to Mat 13:44

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

Tools specific to Mat 13:45

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls,

Tools specific to Mat 13:46

Mat 13:46

who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

Tools specific to Mat 13:47

Mat 13:47

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net which was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind;

Mat 13:48

when it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into vessels but threw away the bad.

Tools specific to Mat 13:49

Mat 13:49

So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous,

Tools specific to Mat 13:50

Mat 13:50

and throw them into the furnace of fire; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.

Tools specific to Mat 13:51

"Have you understood all this?" They said to him, "Yes."

Tools specific to Mat 13:52

And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there,

Tools specific to Mat 13:54

Tools specific to Mat 13:56

Mat 13:56

And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?"

Tools specific to Mat 13:57

And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."

Tools specific to Mat 13:58
