I enquire, what was the question which drew out the answer, or caused Jesus to utter the parable? In some instances the Savior Himself gave the interpretation. For example, Jesus explained the meaning of the parables of the sower and the wheat and the tares see Matthew —8, 18—30, 36— Although there is normally one intended interpretation of a parable, there may be many lessons and truths from a parable that can be applied to modern circumstances.
They were word pictures of what he had observed as he lived among the people. He had seen the sower at work in the field, the shepherd with his sheep, the repentant son returning to his father, the barren fig tree; he knew the publican and the Pharisee and had attended wedding feasts where foolish virgins had no oil in their lamps. Sower verses 3— People who hear the preaching of the gospel respond in various ways. Also, the Church was established by Jesus and the Apostles in the meridian of time.
Wheat and tares verses 24—30, 36— The righteous and wicked grew together in New Testament times, eventually leading to the Great Apostasy. In the latter days, they will grow together until the end of the world, when the wicked will be destroyed and the righteous will be gathered in the kingdom of God. But He, knowing all things, says, Not so.
Mustard seed verses 31— The latter-day Church will spread throughout the earth, aided by the leaven of the testimonies of the Three Witnesses and the latter-day scriptures. It may be understood that the Church of the Latter-day Saints has taken its rise from a little leaven that was put into three witnesses. Behold, how much this is like the parable! It is fast leavening the lump, and will soon leaven the whole.
It should be noted that although in the early days of the Church, Saints were encouraged to gather to a common geographical location, like Nauvoo or Salt Lake City, today Church leaders have encouraged us to stay where we are and to build up the Church in our current cities and towns. Net verses 47— In the parable of the sower also called the parable of the soils , the field represents the world, and the sowers represent the Apostles.
The way side was a path or road around or through fields. It became hardened as farmers and travelers regularly walked upon it.
The hardness of the way side prevented seeds that fell upon it from sinking into the soil and taking root, allowing birds to easily see and eat them. Stony places were rocky surfaces covered by a thin layer of fertile soil. Though seeds could send forth shallow roots, the rock that lay just below the surface prevented the roots from going deeper, and the plant was unable to withstand the scorching heat of the day. The ground with thorns was fertile soil; however, it was overgrown by thorns and other weeds that crowded out more productive plants by depriving them of water and needed nutrients.
The good ground was fertile soil with sufficient depth for healthy roots so the plants could grow and bring forth varying amounts of fruit. Even an all-powerful God cannot give to someone who will not receive. Another Book of Mormon passage reinforces this principle, teaching that when people continue to harden their hearts against spiritual truth, they may lose the spiritual knowledge they once had see Alma — The Savior used parables to hide meaning from those who were spiritually unprepared and to reveal great truths to those who were ready to receive them see Matthew — Thus it is that the parable exhibits the condition of all true knowledge.
