  11. 11. THE KINGDOM PROCESS1. Jesus teaches the parable of the sower and the other parables from a boat.2. The disciples CAME TO HIM sometime after and ask him about the parables.3. Jesus explains that kingdom secrets will only be known by those who GO AFTER the understanding (and therefore the meaning and application).
  12. 12. THE PARABLE“A farmer went out to sow his seed.4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path,and the birds came and ate it up. 5Some fell on rockyplaces, where it did not have much soil. It sprang upquickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the suncame up, the plants were scorched, and they witheredbecause they had no root. 7Other seed fell among thorns,which grew up and choked the plants. 8Still other seedfell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred,sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9He who has ears,let him hear.”
  13. 13. THE MEANINGWhen anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does notunderstand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown inhis heart. This is the seed sown along the path.20The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the manwho hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21But since hehas no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecutioncomes because of the word, he quickly falls away.22The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is theman who hears the word, but the worries of this life and thedeceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.23But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the manwho hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding ahundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
