The Sower Explained by JESUS

The Sower Explained by JESUS

The parable of the sower is one that JESUS taught His disciples how to understand the parables that He taught.

Luke 8:5  A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.

Luke 8:6  And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

Luke 8:7  And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

Luke 8:8  And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luke 8:9  And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?

The parables of JESUS

JESUS spoke in parables. Why did He do this? We will look at the parables of JESUS in more depth in separate study here. Lets us look from the Bible why JESUS spoke to the people in parables. Let us have a look at what the Bible says.

Matthew 13:34  All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

Matthew 13:35  That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.

So JESUS spoke in parables to the people. He always used a parable to speak to them.

Psalm 78:2  I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:

Midnight friend

A parable in Luke 11:5-8 is about a friend that comes to the door of another and asked for three loaves to feed his friend that came to him.

Luke 11:5-8  And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
