Parables of Jesus: Lesson Two

PARABLE OF WHEAT AND TARES

To understand the meaning of the parables of Jesus is to have a clear picture of GOD’S plan for his kingdom. Jesus taught eight parables that deal strictly with “The Kingdom of GOD”.  This parable of the wheat and tares is the second parable Jesus teaches explaining the Kingdom of GOD. In this parable we are introduced to an enemy of the kingdom as well as the bad seed this enemy tries to sow. The outcome of the good seed and bad seed having been sown is referred to as wheat and tares. Jesus uses the harvesting of these two plants to warn us there is a devil and a place of punishment.
