People's Bible Notes for Matthew 13:30


Mt 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest. The time of separation will come at last. The righteous shall not always be vexed by the presence and deeds of evil doers. Harvest time will come, and that is the time of separation. The tares, ripened and manifest, can easily be sifted out from the wheat. For the application of the parable see note at "Mt 13:36".

    the kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven are 1 and the same....jesus uses the kingdom of heaven in matt's. parable of the sower,but kingdom of God in mark and luke's parable of the sower, so they are 1 and the same, there is only 1 bridegroom and 1 bride and 1 God ....thus there can be only 1 kingdom
  • A disciple
    All the parables go together to make the whole message. The various aspects of how a man hears, and what he hears, and what determines his being either good or bad; is not at all something left to chance; (as if we should just accept everyone for what they are, or what they are confused about); but is entirely because of our own willingness and obedience to the Glad Tidings. We are accountable!

    It basically means you can't change yourself or another person till they have matured. In unconsciousness we have accidentally gotten bad seeds within ourselves. When we ripen and gain maturity, only then may the bad be separated and only the good kept. So accept yourself and others unconditionally until you and them are matured and ready.
  • A disciple
    Hi Grace; You asked, "What is the difference between kingdom of God and kingdom of heaven?" I think the difference is simply in the words themselves, and not different things. What I mean is, that the kingdom of God; let's say, as opposed to the kingdoms of men; and the kingdom of heaven, as that which is high above all that we know just now as of the earth and this world: it is the world to come!
  • Grace
    what is the difference between kingdom of God and kingdom of heaven?
  • Insight777
    V52 is important. Jesus tells us the Bible, written by scribes is impartial, telling us both what has been believed in the past and what will be revealed in the future. That is why Jesus asked his followers if they understood him. Follow only Jesus as he walked the earth, that is true understanding of salvation. Everything else is letting someone else have control of your life.
