Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:3 - and Joanna the wife of Chuza, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others who were contributing to their support out of their private means.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:4 - When a large crowd was coming together, and those from the various cities were journeying to Him, He spoke by way of a parable:

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:5 - “The sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell beside the road, and it was trampled under foot and the birds of the [fn]air ate it up.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:6 - “Other seed fell on rocky soil, and as soon as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:7 - “Other seed fell among the thorns; and the thorns grew up with it and choked it out.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:8 - “Other seed fell into the good soil, and grew up, and produced a crop a hundred times as great.” As He said these things, He would call out, “He who has ears to hear, [fn]let him hear.”

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:10 - And He said, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that SEEING THEY MAY NOT SEE, AND HEARING THEY MAY NOT UNDERSTAND.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:11 - “Now the parable is this: the seed is the word of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:12 - “Those beside the road are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they will not believe and be saved.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:13 - “Those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root; [fn]they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:14 - “The seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:15 - “But the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast, and bear fruit with [fn]perseverance.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:16 - “Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:17 - “For nothing is hidden that will not become evident, nor anything secret that will not be known and come to light.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 8:18 - “So take care how you listen; for whoever has, to him more shall be given; and whoever does not have, even what he [fn]thinks he has shall be taken away from him.”
