“¶ Againe, the kingdome of heauen is like vnto a net that was cast into the sea, and gathered of euery kind,”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
Mt 13:47 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a net. The Savior's illustrations all come home to his audience. Many were husbandmen; many were women familiar with the culinary art; some were merchants; many were fishermen. A drag net or seine is meant. Gathered of every kind. Here again, as in the parable of the Tares, it is taught that, at the end of the world, the angels shall sever the wicked from the just.
