PARABLE: Tares Among the Wheat


Matthew 13:24

This parable is prophetic and has a broader view than the previous. Jesus also explains in it later in vv. 36-43. The Sower is Jesus, The Field is the world, The Good Seed are the children of the Kingdom (family of God and the Bride of Christ), The Tares are children of the devil (the Catholic Whore and her Protestant children), The Enemy is Satan, and The Harvest is the end of the world. The Lord is speaking of the time when he returns for his children and his Bride, at which point the children of Satan will be destroyed.
