“Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?” Jesus Christ, Mark 4:13. Jesus’ Parable of the Sower is the foundational parable of all 42 parables! We should therefore place a lot of our focus on the first parable and the teachings related to it. The very first explanation is: “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God…” Amen! The kingdom is the presence of Jesus Christ, the presence of God. Thank you Jesus!
