when the crowds came in droves, that is people who from many city joined to Jesus, he said in a parable. "is a sower went out for sow his seed. at the time he sowed, some seeds fall on the wayside, then trampled by people and the birds of the air eat it all. some fall on rocky ground, and after growing it withered because it had no moisture. some fall among thorns, and bushes they grow together and squeezing it till death. and some fall on good ground, and after growing produce fruit hundredfold. "after Jesus said that, then he said this: "Who have ears to hear, she must hear that!"
jesus disciples asked him what that parable mean. and he replied: "to you is given the gift to know the secret of the kingdom of God, but to others it is preached in parables, so even they looked/see that, they do not see and hearing then they do not understand. this is the meaning of the parable: the seed is the word god. that fall by the wayside is people who have heard; then the devil came and took the word from their heart, then they do not believe and be saved. and which fall on rocky ground that is the person, who after hearing the word , receive it with joy, but they did not have root, they believe just in a little time, and while in time of temptation they fall away. and which fall in the thorns is the people who has heard the words, and in their time to grow, oppressed by the worry and riches and pleasures of life, so they do not produce ripe fruit. and which fall on good soil, is the person, who after hearing the word, keep it in heart with good and produce good fruit and stronger."
