Parables of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah
 The same day went Yeshua
out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying:
Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
 And when he sowed,
some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
 He answered and
said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know
the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
 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 Isaiah, 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.
Isa.6  And he said, Go, and
tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but
 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
Back to Matt.13
 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.
 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
 When any one heareth
the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it
not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that
which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying:
The kingdom of heaven is
likened unto a man which sowed good seed in
 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
 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.
 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying:
The kingdom of heaven is
like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
 All these things spake Yeshua unto the multitude in parables; 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 parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
Back to Matt.13
 Then Yeshua 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.
 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 enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they
shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend,
and them which do iniquity;
 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
 So shall it be at the end of the world:
the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
 Yeshua saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things?
They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
 And he called the multitude, and said unto them,
Hear, and understand:
 Not that which goes into the mouth defiles a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defiles a man.
 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
 But he answered and said, every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
 Then answered Peter and said unto him,
Declare unto us this parable.
 And Yeshua said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
 Do not ye
that whatsoever enters in at the mouth goes into the belly, and is cast out
into the draught?
 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
 For out of the
heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false
 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashed hands defiles not a man.
 Hear another parable:
There was a certain
householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged
a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went
into a far country:
 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
 Yeshua saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures (TaNaKh),
The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?
Pss.118  The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner. Yehovah’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.
 Therefore say I
unto you, The
kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth
the fruits thereof.
 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
 And Yeshua answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
 The kingdom of
heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage
 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 For many are called, but few are chosen
 Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
 But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 And when his friends heard of it, they went out to lay hold on him: for they said, He is beside himself.
 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casts he out devils.
 And he called them unto him, and said unto them in parables,
How can Satan cast out Satan?
 And if a kingdom be
divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
 And he spake also a parable unto them;
No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.
 And no man putteth
new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be
spilled, and the bottles shall perish.
 But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.
 No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.
 Then drew near unto
him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.
 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,
 What man of you,
having an hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, doth not leave the ninety and
nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find
 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.
 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it? And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.
 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
 And the younger of
them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth
to me. And he divided unto them his living.
 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
 Now his elder son
was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick
 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
 And he spake a parable unto them to this end,
that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
 Saying, There was in
a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
 Two men went up
into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other:
for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
 And as they heard these things,
he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
 He said therefore,
A certain nobleman went
into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.
 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
 And he saith
unto him, Out of thine own mouth will
I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest
that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I
did not sow:
 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.
 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
 This parable spake Yeshua unto them:
but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
 Then said Yeshua unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
 But he that is an
hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth
the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep,
and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth
 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am
known of mine.
 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
 And Yeshua
a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:
 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
21] So is he that lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom:
the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime received thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets;(the TaNakh) let them hear them.
 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, (the TaNakh), neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
 As he that binds a stone in a sling, so is he that gives honor to a fool.
 As a thorn goes up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.
 The great God that formed all things both rewards the fool, and rewards transgressors.
I will explain the Sabbath again quickly, if needed.
The Sabbath is not "a service" for an hour and a half, but the Sabbath is a "whole 24 hr. day" to the God of Israel, the 4th Commandment.
The Sabbath is not every day
Scriptures says: Exod.20  But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yehovah thy God:
in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
 For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
The word Sabbath is "60 times" in the Gospels and letters
Question: S0 why are we here today?
Answer: We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy
The Sabbath is the 4th Commandment and part of the “covenant” given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan
Ex. 20  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
 But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
 For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Lev. 23  And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.
 Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.
Within your gates - in all your dwellings
Unto this day, some people are still breaking the 4th commandment each week by not keeping the Sabbath as it is described above.
I shall again define a few words for you:
