PARABLE: A Net


Matthew 13:47

In this parable, the focus is much more broad. All that is gathered of every kind, “good and bad” refers to the “wicked” and the “just.” The “just” (children of God) are preserved, whereas the wicked are cast into a furnace of fire (Lake of Fire). Note, “there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” refers to the expression of anguish that will take place. This expression can be true for both saved and unsaved, depending on context.
