The literal interpretation of the Parable
Matthew 13:34-35-All these things spake Jesus unto the
multitude in a parable; and without a parable spake He not unto them. That
it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will
open my mouth in parable; I will utter things which have been kept secret
from the foundation of the world.
The word ‘foundation’ in Greek means, "from
conception." (Strong’s #2602)
Matthew 13:35 is quoted from Psalms 78:2.
Jesus spoke of things that have been kept secret from the conception of this
earth age. The secret of the tares goes back to Genesis where they are
identified as literal children of the wicked one, of whom Cain was his first
born (1 John 3:12).
Matthew 13:36-Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and
went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, Declare
unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
The disciples, heard the parable of the tares and the
wheat but they did not hear with understanding. So, after Jesus had sent the
multitude away, the disciples came to Him privately and asked Him to tell
them the meaning of the parable. Jesus is not speaking in a parable now, but
explaining the parable, revealed to His disciples this hidden mystery.
Matthew 13:37-38-He answered and said unto them, He
That soweth the good seed is the Son of man. The field is the world; the
good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of
the wicked one;
The conception of the tares took place in Eden. The enemy
who sowed these evil children into the world is the dragon, that
old serpent called the devil and Satan. Four offices of
deception but only one enemy of God. Documentation is found in Revelation
12:9 & Revelation 20:1-2.
Matthew 13:39-The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
Here are the facts of the riddle in this parable. Jesus,
the Son of man, is the one who sow, Christians, the children of the kingdom
(Matthew 13:24). The field in this fictitious narrative is the world
(Matthew 13:24). The tares in this parable are the flesh and blood children
of the wicked one (1 John 3:12). The enemy who sows these evil children is
the devil (Matthew 13:25). And the reapers are the angels who will gather
together this evil seed at the end of this age (Matthew 13:30). Now you have
the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth exactly as Jesus taught
us in such a simplistic way that even a child could understand it. And I
pray that you approach this study with child-like belief and learn the
truth, not the watered-down version that is taught by faithless men. I thank
you for studying with Men As Trees Teaching Ministry and encourage you to
