A parable is given for the purpose of comparison, as an example or pattern which illustrates the mysteries of the kingdom of God. In regard to the Parable of the Sower, Jesus asked His disciples, “Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?” No doubt, these questions suggest that the Parable of the Sower is one of the most important that we could examine. Over the years, I have studied many of the parables, usually in conjunction with certain topics which enhance my understanding of the subject at hand. And I will be the first to admit that some are much more difficult to understand than others. Why? Perhaps due to the fact that there is usually more to a parable than what first meets the eye. As this study shows, the Parable of the Sower is one of these.
