The parable of the weeds
By krjt, Updated
One day Jesus went out of his house and sat by a lake.
A huge crowd gathered, so Jesus got into a boat and sat in it whilst the people were on the shore. Then he told the people the parable of the weeds.
The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?
The kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field.
An enemy did this
Do you want us to go and pull them up?
But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among with the wheat, and went away.
When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. The owner’s servants came to him and said, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?
“‘No,’ he answered, ‘because while you are pulling the weeds, you may uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.’”
