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".

Discussion for Matthew 13

  • Word
    Disciple our Lord Jesus explained the parable Himself from Matt. 13:27-42 where God sends His seed, children to earth and the wicked one Satan sends his tares, children to earth. It has nothing to do with our hearts receiving the word. No need to explain it. Christ spoke to these same ones in John 8:44-47 where He said you are of your father the devil.
  • A disciple
    "But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way." We have to understand this in the same context as the Parable of the Sower: it is about OUR hearts receiving the word of God in the Glad Tidings; otherwise then; not only being hardened, with no depth, and choked out by the cares of this world; but being instead sown by the devil, to become his planting!
  • Matt
    @ Word, I see that your eyes are wide open. As our Lord said, "Blessed are your eyes". Cain is the son of the devil (Gen. 3 and 1 John ch. 3 v. 12), and Cain's children, the Kenites, are the tares. Their true identity is revealed in John ch. 8 (v. 44, specifically); Rev. ch. 2 v. 9 and Rev. ch. 3 v. 9. Any of them that refuse to accept The Savior Jesus Christ will be cast into the fire with Satan.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    PARADOX. Our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahweh in and through His Son our everliving Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus would never have His people ignorant of what is to come in this end of the age of the gentiles. No man can recieve anything except it be given him from above. THE DREADFUL AND TERRIBLE DAY OF THE LORD IS AT HAND ! SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA AMEN !

    Jesus is the Son of GOD! Satan has Angels! Son of man shall send forth his angels,
  • Randolph Blankenship
    I love this chapter but the part that speaks loudest to me is the wheat and the tares, I believe this scripture speaks loud and clear to the church today. I believe that there are so many people in the church today that fit this scripture, and it is almost scary to think how many people in church today believe that they are a christian when in all actuality they are headed wide open to an eternity
