He spoke many things unto them in parables, saying, behold a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed:
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. The disciples came, and said unto Him, why speak thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given. Whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Therefore, speak I to them in parables, because they seeing see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand; and in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, by hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand, and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive, for this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. Verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower
Note: The writer of the Book of Hebrews had more to say regarding a certain person, but could not because the hearers were “dull of hearing”. Hebrews 5:11 (read the whole chapter). Let us "break up the fallow ground of our heart" and believe and receive the Word of YHVH.
What is the “seed”?
What did Isaiah, the Prophet of YHVH, prophecy? Read Isaiah 6:9-10; Isaiah 29:13
Note: The phrase “Who hath ears to hear, let him hear” and similar phrases are stated by Yahshua within the Gospels i.e. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and the Book of Revelation.
