Matthew 13:10 - 13:17

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In Matthew 13:10-17, Jesus explains to his disciples that the parables he tells are meant to reveal the mysteries of the spiritual kingdom to those who have ears to hear. He warns them not to cast their pearls before swine, or those without the understanding to receive the message, but to instead reveal the deeper truths to those who are receptive. The speaker notes that this theme is echoed in the Bible's prophecy, where hearts grow dull and resistant to God's messages, but emphasizes that with openness and understanding, one can gain eternal inheritance in the spiritual kingdom.
