The Complete Sayings of Jesus, by Arthur Hinds, [1927] A.D. 28, Age 31, Capernaum: Sea of Galilee. Matt. 12, 46-50; 13, 1-30; Mark 3, 31-35; 4, 1-29: Luke 8, 4-18; 19-21. WHILE Jesus yet talked, behold, there came his mother and his brethren, desiring to speak with him, and could not come at him for the press. Then one said unto him, Thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. But Jesus answered him that told him, He looked on them which sat about him, stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, ¶The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. Much people were come to him out of every city; so that he entered into a ship, and sat. The multitude stood on the shore. And Jesus spake many things unto them in parables, saying, † Some seed fell on stony ground where it had not much earth: and immediately it sprang up, because it had not much deepness of earth: And some fell upon a rock: as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up with it, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. But other fell into good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up, and increased; and bare fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, and some thirtyfold. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. When he was alone, his disciples came and said unto Jesus, Why speakest thou in parables? He answered,  *For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, † which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: for this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them, and their sins should be forgiven them.  ‡But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. And he said unto them, ¶Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. The sower soweth the word. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh immediately Satan the wicked one, and catcheth away that word, which was sown in his heart: the devil taketh away the word They on the rock received seed into stony places: these are they who when they have heard the word, anon with joy receive it, and for a while believe; yet have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time; and in time of temptation fall away: for afterward, when affliction or tribulation or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended. * And they which received the seed among thorns, are they, which, when they have heard the word, go forth, and are choked with the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches and the pleasures of this life; and bring no fruit to perfection: the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. But he that received the seed into the good ground is he that in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, understandeth it, and keepeth it, and beareth fruit with patience, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? ¶He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. ¶And he said unto them, No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. For there is nothing hid, neither was anything kept secret, which shall not be manifested; but that it should be known and come abroad. If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. ¶And he said, 37:† The interested reader will be repaid who compares the three texts of these parables and those following in XXIX, and contrasts paragraph by paragraph the phrasing of each text with that of the other two: Matthew 13, 3-52; Mark 4, 3-34; Luke 8, 5-18. 38:* Thus Matthew (13, 12). Turn to the last footnote in this XXVIII, and compare. 38:† Isaiah 6, 9-10. 38:‡ Thus Matthew (13, 16-17); compare with last paragraph of XLVIII in this book (Luke 10, 23-24). 39:* The Revised Version, instead of "they are offended," has "they stumble." Discouraged? Disheartened? Moffatt has it, "repelled." 40:* Thus Mark (4, 25). Luke's phrasing of this reads (8, 18): Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have. (For Matthew's, turn back to the second footnote of this XXVIII.)

1 Cary W = "This quote is a powerful cleanse and meditation, for it reveals that if we perceive ourselves lacking any good thing or being deprived, we set ourselves up to focus on lack and need, rather than gratitude for all we do have, if nothing else, in breath, health, and being alive.  Yet as we appreciate all that is given us, our attitude of faith and gratitude act like a magnet to continue to attract even more good things from Papa!"
2 Cary W = "Even  before He appeared in the world, He was revealing Himself to any who had eye or ear set to find Him.  It remains the same, as always; God is found when we surrender all other things, in favor of seeing and hearing Him in our life each day and hour!"
3 Cary W = "This is a powerful teaching and warning, for it concerns everyone of us, for depending on His word to us, and the current condition of our heart, we either really grow a good tree, or it gets snuffed out through not attempting to find its meaning, being shallow in devotion, or in allowing distractions from the world kill the seed of His word.  It always comes clearly to each of us moments before a test, opportunity or temptation, so as to help us grow and escape the trap or error."
4 Cary W = "What we do with the sacred seed when given, is most important, for so many things can abort the birth of a good tree of life if we lack depth, courage or diligence."
