Speaking of The Parable of Wheat, Mustard Seed, Yeast and the Weeds

Updated on October 22, 2014

The meaning of the Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds

A lot of readers and viewers why I combined these two words is because they have their different meanings and they have also their symbolism in each words.

This article has its designated Bible verse and it is found in Matthew 13:24-43.

For the wheat, it means true Christians and at the same time, believers.

While for the Weeds, it is called unbelievers or we can call it Atheist or people who has no religion to believed. They are classified as false Christians.

Supportive Bible verses that relates to the Parable of Wheat, Mustard Seed, Yeast and the weeds

In terms of good seed, there are two Bible verses that can help support for my related articles and these can be found in Mark 4:14 and Luke 8:11

Mark 4:14

The farmer sows the sword.

As we analyze this verse, these has so many connections of this bible verse because based on my findings that I have observed, it has connection in 1 Peter 1:23-25 then Ephesians 3:8 and also in James 1:18.

Luke 8:11

This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.

This Bible verse has a connection that is found in 1 Peter 1:23 " For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, though the living and enduring the word of God."

Weed control

One of the best ways to fight weeds is to cultivate the ground early and constantly. Another is to burn over weedy ground before plowing. Still another method is to mow roadsides, vacant lots, and all other cultivated lands before the weed seeds ripen.

Speaking of a weeds

Weed is a plant that is troublesome and worthless in the place where it is growing.

The dividing line between weeds and useful plants does not lie in the plants themselves, although in the way men use them. Plants that are considered weeds in one place may be cultivated in another. Take for an example, oats growing in a cornfield would be weeds, although oats are useful plants in an oat field. Grass grows in almost every plowed field, and gets in the way of the crop. In such a place, grass is a weed. Although grass may be a very valuable crop in a hayfield or pasture.

Sometimes plants usually considered weeds are actually useful. They may serve as food for wild animals and birds. certain weeds can be used as forage for farm animals. Also, weeds often help to control soil erosion.

Parable of the Weeds

This paragraph will try to explain the meaning of the parable of the weeds. The coverage of these verse covers on Matthew 13 verses 36 up to 43.

In verse 42, Jesus often use these terms to refer to the coming judgment. The weeping indicates sorrow or remorse, and gnashing of teeth that shows extreme anxiety or pain. Those who say they don't care what happens to them after they die don't realize what they are saying. They will be punished for living in selfishness and indifference to God.

In verse 43, Those who will shine like the sun in God's Kingdom stand in contrast to those who receive his judgment. A similar illustration that is used in Daniel 12:3.

When it comes to over-all verses from verses 40-43, there is also an explanation for this. At the end of the world, angels will separate the evil from the good. There are true and false believers in churches today or at present times, although we should be cautious in our judgments because only Christ is qualified to make the final separation. Once they start judging, they may damage some of the good plants. It is more important to judge our own response to God in order to analyze other's responses.
