24) Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25) But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26) But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27) 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?
28) He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29) But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30) 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.
It seems that the truth of this parable still remains a mystery
to most Christians. It is often seen as a spiritual teaching
when in fact we will learn that the symbolism used here is of very
real events that involve real people in the Bible.
This parable doesn't need man to interpret it's meaning. Jesus
Himself would give us the interpretation when asked by his
disciples the meaning of the Parable of the Tares. All we need now
is to have our eyes and ears open to understand the truth that
Jesus has given us here.
