The Seed
Luke 8:4-18
And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he [Y'shua] spake by a parable:

A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the


way side
; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
And some fell upon a
rock
; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
And some fell among
thorns
; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.
And other fell on
good ground
, and
sprang up
, and
bare fruit
an hundredfold.
And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Elohim: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of Elohim. Those by the
way side
are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the
rock
are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
And that which fell among
thorns
are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
But that on the
good ground
are they, which in an
honest and good heart
, having
heard
the word [
logos (greek), Torah (hebrew),]
keep
it, and
bring forth fruit with patience
.
