The Serpent’s Seed Taught by Christ In A Parable

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 view some of the other Bible studies on this website.
