36Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field." 37He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 38The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom.

3 A KINGDOM PARABLE “The kingdom of heaven is like …
Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like … 1/3 of the recorded teaching of Jesus was given in parables.

First century Jews lived in an agrarian culture, so it’s no wonder that a lot of Jesus’s teaching used the example of crops and farmers. In the Parable of the Sower, Jesus talks about how people respond to the gospel. In the Parable of the Tenants, He used the story of a vineyard to address the ways Israel had consistently worked against God.

The servants want to help the farmer by uprooting the imposters, but they lack the sensitivity of the angelic harvesters. It’s not the job of the servants to make judgments about what is and isn’t actual wheat. Their job is to serve the farmer as He spreads the legitimate seed.

Horticultural sabotage

To really grasp this parable, it’s helpful to understand that Jesus is describing the kingdom of God. Jesus is sowing gospel seeds throughout the world and raising up Christians. But at the same time, the enemy is in the world spreading counterfeit seed. In its immature state, it isn’t always simple to discern the differences between those that belong to the kingdom and those who do not.

He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.

The owner’s servants came to him and said, "Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?"

34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. (K) 35 So was fulfilled (L) what was spoken through the prophet:

27 “The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?’

“I will open my mouth in parables,
I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.” [b] (M)

The Parables of the Mustard Seed and the Yeast (C) (D)

“The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’

37 He answered, “The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. (O) 38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the people of the kingdom. The weeds are the people of the evil one, (P) 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest (Q) is the end of the age, (R) and the harvesters are angels. (S)

31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like (E) a mustard seed, (F) which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” (G)

28 “‘An enemy did this,’ he replied.
