The Sower, Seed, and Soil parable (also known as The Parable of the Soils) is included in all three synoptic gospels (Matthew 13, Mark 4, and Luke 8), as is the baptism and temptation of Jesus, and the ministry of John the Baptist. Yet, more teachingMoreThe Sower, Seed, and Soil parable (also known as The Parable of the Soils) is included in all three synoptic gospels (Matthew 13, Mark 4, and Luke 8), as is the baptism and temptation of Jesus, and the ministry of John the Baptist.

Yet, more teaching is based on the Sermon on the Mount, overlooking the emphasis of the preaching and teaching of John the Baptist and Jesus about preparing for the coming Kingdom of God on earth.The Sermon on the Mount (and on the Plain in Luke 6) contains teaching on preparing for and living in the Kingdom of God. This message is defined and narrowed to a specific requirement mandated by Jesus for entrance into the coming Kingdom of God on earth. This requirement is based on the Old Covenant condition of obedience to the Law.

These conditions are required of every Israelite to enter into the Kingdom promised to David.In the Parable of the Soils, however, secrets hidden since creation are revealed to the disciples, secrets remaining hidden to those who deny Jesus as the true Messiah. This eBook provides analysis and commentary of the parable, including the revealed secrets. Sermons and bible studies presenting various interpretations exist, many providing conflicting applications resulting in confusion.The fact is any single parable has only one interpretation- however, the applications from that single interpretation may be many.

Confirmation is provided by Luke’s statement in verse one of chapter 18, a preface to Jesus’ parable of the Widow and Unjust Judge, confirming a single purpose.Related to the parable of the Sower, Seed, and Soil are several short parables contain metaphors providing characteristics associated with the Kingdom of God: the subject of the Sower, Seed, and Soil parable.

Identified by the words, “The Kingdom of God is like…” each provides an example of various characteristics further defining the Kingdom of God. Some are examples of the growth, some provide warnings, and others provide the value of living in the Kingdom.Jewish society in Jesus’ day was agricultural, but this parable was given to fishermen living near and working on the Sea of Galilee.

Eight of the disciples were from Galilee, five known fishermen, and the other three associated with fishermen. Those gathered on the shore listening were connected to the fishing industry, except for the religious group of Pharisees and Scribes. To state that everyone understood the intricacies of sowing seed among different soils is an overstatement for this crowd.

We, as they, can follow the parable understanding the different types of soil, but still question why one would sow near a road or pathway, near or within thorn bushes, or even among rocks.
