The sower went forth to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and it was trodden down, and the birds of the air ate it up.

And other seed fell into good ground, and sprung up, and produced fruit a hundred-fold. When he had said these things, he cried: He that has ears to hear, let him hear. And the disciples asked him, saying: What does this parable mean? He replied: To you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that when they see, they may not see, and when they hear, they may not understand. But the meaning of the parable is this: The seed is the word of God; those by the way side are they that hear; then comes the devil and takes the word from their heart, lest they should believe and be saved. Those on the rock are they that, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who, for awhile, believe, and in time of temptation apostatize. That which fell among thorns are those who hear, and so conduct them selves, that they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are those who, in a good and honest heart, hear the word, and keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

When any one hears the word of the kingdom, and understands it not, the wicked one comes and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is he that received seed by the way side. He that received seed on the stony places is he that hears the word, and immediately receives it with joy. Yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while; and when affliction or persecution arises on account of the word, he immediately takes offense. read more.
He that received seed among the thorns, is he that hears the word; and the cares of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.

These are they that received seed by the wayside, where the word is sown; and when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. And these are they that, in like manner, received seed in stony places: who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy: and they have no root in themselves, but endure for a time; afterward, when affliction or persecution arises on account of the word, they immediately take offense. read more.

preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and teaching.

Now the feast of tabernacles, a feast of the Jews, was near.
