The Complete Sayings of Jesus, by Arthur Hinds, , at sacred-texts.com
A.D. 28. Age 31. Capernaum: Sea of Galilee.
Mk. 4, 30-34; 35-41: Matt. 13, 31-34; 36-52: Lk. 13, 18-21; 8, 22-25.
ANOTHER parable put he forth unto them, saying,
Then said he,
¶Again Jesus said,
And another parable spake he unto them,
All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables.
Then he sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. He answered,
As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
¶Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
¶Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchantman, seeking goodly pearls: who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
¶Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Jesus saith unto them,
They say, Yea, Lord. Then said he unto them,
And with many such parables spake Jesus the word unto them, as they were able to hear it. But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.
The same day, when even was come, Jesus entered into a ship. His disciples followed, and he said unto them,
They took him even as he was in the ship. And they launched forth.
As they sailed, behold, there came down a storm of wind: the waves beat into the ship, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves.
Jesus was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and his disciples awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. He said unto them,
Then he arose and rebuked the winds, and the raging of the water: he said unto the sea,
The wind ceased: there was a great calm, and Jesus said unto his disciples,
But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?
40:† This parable and the one following may profitably be compared with the similar ones from Luke (13, 18-21) at the end of LIII in this book.
