Yeshua explains the parable of the sower to a dwindling number of his “inner circle” disciples.
Spoken to is disciples during Week 26 of Yeshua’s ministry while traveling from one city to another. Note This Is: THE SECOND TIME Yeshua was recorded speaking this Parable!
Mark 4:21-25 ~ Luke 8:16-18
21 Then he said to them, “Is a lamp brought out to be put under a basket, or under a bed and not to be set on a lampstand? 22 There is nothing hid that shall “not be made manifest, neither is there anything kept in secret that it should come into the light. 23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.” 24 Then Yeshua said to them, “Take heed – listen very carefully to what I now say! The measure that you use to measure others will be used to measure you. To you that hear and obey even more shall be given to you. 25 He that adheres [to the Gospel of the Kingdom] to him more will be given – but he that does not obey, even what he has been given will be taken away from him.”
16 No man, when he has lit a lamp, covers it with a vessel or puts it under a bed. He sets it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. 17 There is nothing secret that shall not be made manifest – neither is there anything hid that shall not be known openly. 18 Take heed and listen carefully. Whoever obeys, to him shall more be given. Whoever does not obey, even what he seems to have will be taken away from him.
