Questions for Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

  1. What is a parable? Do you have a favorite?
  2. What is significant about the timing of these kingdom parables? (Both support and opposition are growing)
  3. What are the 4 types of soil and what happens to seed in each type?
  4. What does Jesus’ explanation (vs 18-23) reveal about the seed? The soil, and the sower?
  5. How might this parable help the disciples help understand what is happening in their ministry?
  6. What does a parable accomplish that direct speech lacks?
  7. In vs 16-17 Jesus gives a new beatitude. What have these disciples seen and heard that prophets longed for? Are we included in this blessing or was it only for those who were there?
  8. Can you see and hear Jesus at work in today’s world?
  9. How would you explain this parable to city kids?
  10. What deep roots keep a disciple from falling away? What give you those deep roots?
  11. What worries have potential to choke your growth in Christ? How can you free your life from these thorns?

Online Bible Studies

Hi Church,
I invite you to join me in studying God’s Word online using the You Version Bible app (Bible.com). Each study begins on a specific date, but you are welcome to start a little earlier or later.  You can read on your own, but when you comment, the whole group can see what you wrote and respond. I hope you will participate, and I pray that you would be blessed with wisdom, growth, and new energy through the study and interaction with God’s word. 

Through Christ Jesus, our Lord, Amen
