He shall be called a Ναζωραῖος/Nazoraios [Nazirite]…Mt 2:23
…the sect of the Nazoreans [or, Nasareans?]… Acts 24:5
“This sect of Nazoræans is [presently in 375 AD] to be found inBishop Epiphanius, The Panarion (c. 375 AD)
Beroea near Coelesyria, in the Decapolis near Pella,
and in Bashanitis at the place called…Khokhabe
in Hebrew…[in practice] They are nothing but Jews…”
“This Essene sect of the Nasaræans. They are Jews by nationality,
from Gileaditis, Bashanitis and the Transjordan as I have been told,
but descendants of Israel himself.” There are only a
handful of Nasaræans [left as such] . . . they have been united

Section 4, Chapters 31 thru 40
The Bread of Life and the Living Vine; Yahshúa Rebuked the Thoughtless Driver
1. AGAIN Yahshúa said, “I am the true Bread and the living Vine. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness and are dead. This is the food of ELOHÍYM which comes down from heaven, that whosoever eats thereof shall not die. I am the living food which came down from heaven; if any eat of this food, they shall live forever; and the bread that I will give is My truth and the wine which I will give is my life.”
2. And the Judæans strove amongst themselves, saying, “How can this man give us himself for food?” Then Yahshúa said, “Do ye think that I speak of the eating of flesh, which ye ignorantly do in the Miqdásh of ELOHÍYM?”
3. Truly, my body is the substance of ELOHÍYM, and truly this is food, and my blood is the life of ELOHÍYM, and this is drink indeed. Not as your ancestors, who craved for flesh, and ELOHÍYM gave them flesh in his wrath, and they ate of corruption till it stank in their nostrils, and their corpses fell by the thousand in the wilderness by reason of the plague.
4. Of such it is written, They shall wander nine and forty years in the wilderness till they are purified from their lusts, lest they enter into the land of rest, yea, seven times seven years shall they wander because they have not known My ways, neither obeyed My laws.’
5. But they who eat this flesh and drink this blood dwells in me and I in them. As the Father-Mother of life has sent me, and by whom I live, so they that eat of me, who am the truth and the life, even they shall live by me.
6. This is that living bread which coming down from heaven gives life to the world. Not as your ancestors did eat manna and are dead. They that eat of this bread and this fruit, shall live forever.” These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum. Many therefore of his disciples when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying. Who can receive it?”
7. When Yahshúa knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said to them, “Does this offend you? What and if ye shall see the Son and Daughter of man ascend to where they were before? It is the spiritess that quickens, the flesh and blood profits nothing. The words that I speak to you, they are spiritess and they are life.
8. But there are some of you that do not believe [embrace]. For Yahshúa knew from the beginning who they were who should not believe, and who should betray him. Therefore, he said to them, “No one can come to me, unless it were given from above.”
9. From that time many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him. Then Yahshúa said to the twelve, “Will ye also go away?”
10. Then Shimón Kepha answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. And we believe and we are sure that you are that Mashíakh, a Son of the living ELOHÍYM.”
11. Yahshúa answered them, “Have not I chosen you Twelve, and also, one who is a traitor?” He spoke of Judas Iscariot son of Shimón the Levite, for he it was that should betray him.
12. AND Yahshúa was traveling to Jerusalem, and there came a camel heavy laden with wood. And the camel could not drag it up the hill where he went for the weight thereof, and the driver beat him and cruelly ill-treated him, but he could make him go no further.
13. And Yahshúa seeing this, said to him, “Why do you beat your brother?” And the man answered, “I did not know that he is my brother. Is he not an animal of burden and made to serve me?”
14. And Yahshúa said, “Has not the same ELOHÍYM made of the same substance the camel and your children who serve you, and have ye not one breath of life which ye have both received from ELOHÍYM?
15. And the man marveled much at this saying, and he ceased from beating the camel, and took off some of the burden and the camel walked up the hill as Yahshúa went before him and stopped no more till he ended his journey. 16. And the camel knew Yahshúa, having felt of the love of ELOHÍYM in him. And the man inquired further of the doctrine, and Yahshúa taught him gladly and he became his disciple.
ELOHÍYM the Food and Drink of All
1. AND it came to pass as he sat at supper with his disciples, one of them said to him, “Master, how do you that you will give your flesh to eat and your blood to drink, for it is a hard saying unto many?”
2. And Yahshúa answered and said, “The words which I spoke to you are Spiritess and they are Life. To the ignorant and the carnally minded they savour of bloodshed and death; but, blessed are they who understand.
3. Behold the grain which grows up into ripeness and is cut down, and ground in the mill, and baked with fire into bread! Of this bread is my body made, which ye see. And behold the grapes which grow on the vine to ripeness, and are plucked and crushed in the winepress, and yield the fruit of the vine! Of this fruit of the vine and of water is made my blood.
4. For of the fruits of the trees and the seeds of the herbs alone do I partake, and these are changed by the Spiritess into my flesh and my blood. Of these alone and their like shall ye eat who believe in me, and are my disciples, for of these, in the Spiritess come life and health and healing to man.
5. Truly, my Presence shall be with you in the Substance and Life of ELOHÍYM, manifested in this body and this blood. And of these ye all shall eat and drink who believe [embrace and keep faith] in me.
6. For in all places I shall be lifted up for the life of the world, as it is written in the prophets, ‘From the rising up of the sun unto the going down of the same, in every place a pure Oblation with incense shall be offered unto my Name.’
7. As in the natural so in the spiritual. My doctrine and my life shall be food and drink to you, —the Bread of Life and the Wine of Salvation.
8. As the corn and the grapes are transmuted into flesh and blood, so must your natural minds be changed into spiritual. Seek ye the transformation of the natural into the Spiritual.
9. Truly I say to you, in the beginning, all creatures of ELOHÍYM did find their sustenance in the herbs and the fruits of the earth alone, till the ignorance and the selfishness of man turned many of them from the use which ELOHÍYM had given them to that which was contrary to their original use, but even these shall yet return to their natural food, as it is written in the prophets, and their words shall not fail.
10. Truly, ELOHÍYM ever gives of the Eternal Life and Substance to renew the forms of the universe. Thus, it is of the flesh and blood, even the Substance and Life of the Eternal, that ye are partakers to life, and my words are spirit and they are life.
11. And if ye keep My commandments and live the life of the righteous, ye shall be happy in this life, and in that which is to come. Marvel not therefore that I said to you, Unless ye eat of the flesh and drink the blood of ELOHÍYM, ye have no life in you.”
12. And the disciples answered saying: Master, forever, give us to eat of this bread and to drink of this cup; For, truly, your words are food and drink; By your Life and by your Substance may we live forever.
By the Shedding of Blood of Others Is No Remission Of Sins
1. YAHSHÚA was teaching his disciples in the outer court of the Miqdásh, and one of them said to him: “Master, it is said by the priests that without shedding of blood there is no remission. So, can the blood offerings of the Toráh take away sin?”
2. And Yahshúa answered: “No blood offering, of animal or bird, or man, can take away sin, for how can the conscience be purged from sin by the shedding of innocent blood? No, it will increase the condemnation.
3. The priests indeed receive such offering as a reconciliation of the worshippers for the trespasses against the Toráh of Moshéh, but for sins against the Toráh of YHWH there can be no remission, save by teshuváh and amendment.
4. Is it not written in the prophets, ‘Put away your blood sacrifices to your burnt offerings, and away with them, and cease ye from the eating of flesh, for I spoke not to your fathers nor commanded them, when I brought them out of Mitsrayim, concerning these things? But this thing I commanded saying:
5, ‘Obey my voice and walk in the ways that I have commanded you, and ye shall be my people, and it shall be well with you.’ But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear.
6. And what does the Eternal command you but to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your ELOHÍYM? Is it not written that in the beginning ELOHÍYM ordained the fruits of the trees and the seeds and the herbs to be food for all flesh?
7. But they have made the House of Prayer a den of thieves, and for the pure Oblation with Incense, they have polluted my altars with blood, and eaten of the flesh of the slain.
8. But I say to you, Shed no innocent blood nor eat ye flesh. Walk uprightly, love mercy, and do justly, and your days shall be long in the land.
9. The grain that grows from the earth with the other grain, is it not transformed by the Spiritess into my flesh? The grapes of the vineyard, with the other fruits are they not transformed by the Spiritess into my blood? Let these, with your bodies and souls, be your Memorial to the Eternal.
10. In these is the presence of ELOHÍYM manifest as the Substance and as the Life of the world. Of these ye shall eat and drink for the remission of sins, and for eternal life, to all who obey my words.”
11. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market, a pool which is called Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the waters.
12. For at a certain season, an angel went down into the pool and troubled the waters; whosoever went first into the waters was made whole of whatever disease he had. And a man, impotent from his birth, was there.
13. And Yahshúa said to him, “Do not the waters bring healing? He said to him, “Yea, Master, but I have no man, when the water is troubled to put me in, and while I am trying to come, another steps down before me.” And Yahshúa said to him, “Arise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately he rose and walked. And on the same day was the Shabbath.
14. Therefore, the Judæans said to him, “It is the Shabbath. It is not lawful for you to carry your bed.” And he that was healed knew not that it was Yahshúa. And Yahshúa had transported himself away, a multitude being in that place.
Love of Yahshúa for All Creatures
1. WHEN Yahshúa knew how the Pharisees had murmured and complained because he made and baptized more disciples than Yoḥanan, he left Judæa, and departed to Galilee.
2. AND Yahshúa came to a certain tree and abode beneath it many days. And there came Mariám Magdalena and other women and ministered to him of their substance, and he taught daily all that came to him.
3. And the birds gathered around him, and welcomed him with their song, and other living creatures came to his feet, and he fed them, and they ate out of his hands.
4. And when he departed, he blessed the women who showed love to him, and turning to the fig tree, he blessed it also, saying, “You have given me shelter and shade from the burning heat, and additionally you also have given me food. 5. Blessed be you, increase and be fruitful, and let all who come to you, find rest and shade and food, and let the birds of the air rejoice in your branches.”
6. And behold the tree grew and flourished exceedingly, and its branches took root downward, and sent shoots upward, and it spread mightily, so that no tree was like it, for its size and beauty, and the abundance and goodness of its fruit.
7. AND as Yahshúa entered into a certain village he saw a young cat which had none to care for her, and she was hungry and cried to him, and he took her up, and put her inside his garment, and she lay in his bosom.
8. And when he came into the village, he set food and drink before the cat, and she ate and drank and showed thanks to him. And he gave her to one of his disciples, who was a widow, whose name was Lorenza, and she took care of her.
9. And some of the people said, “This man cares for all creatures. Are they his brothers and sisters that he should love them?” And he said to them, Truly, these are your fellow creatures of the great Household of ELOHÍYM, yea, they are your brethren and sisters, having the same breath of life in the Eternal.
10. And whosoever cares for one of the least of these, and gives it to eat and drink in its need, the same does it to me, and whoso willingly suffers one of these to be in want, and does not defend it when evilly treated, permits the evil as done to me; for as ye have done in this life, so shall it be done to you in the life to come.
The Good Law; Mariám and Martha
1. AND behold a certain lawyer stood up and tested him, saying, “Master, what shall I do to gain eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the Toráh? How do you read it?”
2. And answering, he said, “You shall not do to others as you desire that they should not do to you. You shall love your ELOHÍYM with all your heart and all your soul and all your mind. You shall do to others as you would that they should do to you.”
3. And he said to him, “You have answered right, this do, and you shall live; on these three commandments hang all the Toráh and the Prophets, for whoever loves ELOHÍYM, loves his neighbor also.”
4. But he, willing to justify himself, said to Yahshúa, “And who is my neighbor? And Yahshúa answering said, “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment and wounded him and departed leaving him half dead.
5. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise, a Levite also came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.
6. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion on him. And went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
7. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two dinars, and gave them to the host, and said, ‘Take care of him and whatsoever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’
8. Which now of these three, do you think, was neighbor to him that fell among thieves? And he said, “He that showed mercy on him.” Then Yahshúa said to him, “Go, and you do likewise.”
9. Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village, and a woman named Martha received him into her house. And she had a sister called Mariám, who also sat at Yahshúa’s feet, and heard his word.
10. But Martha was overwhelmed with much serving and came to him saying, “Master, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? So, speak to her that she may help me.”
11. And Yahshúa answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful, and Mariám has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
12. AGAIN, as Yahshúa sat at supper with his disciples in a certain city. He said to them, “As a table is set upon twelve pillars, so am I in your midst.
13. Truly I say to you, wisdom builds her house and hews out her twelve pillars. She does prepare her bread and her oil and mingles her wine. She does furnish her table.
14. And she stands upon the high places of the city, and cries to the sons and the daughters of men! ‘Whosoever will, let them turn in here, let them eat of my bread and take of my oil, and drink of my wine.
15. Forsake the foolish and live and go in the way of understanding. The veneration of ELOHÍYM is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. By me shall your days be multiplied, and the years of your life shall he increased.’”
The Woman Taken In Adultery
1. ON a certain day, early in the morning, Yahshúa came again into the Miqdásh, and all the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them.
2. And the Scribes and Pharisees brought to him a woman taken in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to him, “Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very acts. Now Moshéh, in the Toráh, commanded us that such should be stoned, but what do you say?”
3. This they said, testing him, that they might have a basis to accuse him. But Yahshúa stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he had not heard them.
4. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said to them, “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.”
5. And again he stooped down and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even to the last. And Yahshúa was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
6. When Yahshúa had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said to her, “Woman, where are those your accusers? Has no man condemned you?” She said to him, “No man, Master. And Yahshúa said to her, “Neither do I condemn you. From henceforth sin no more; go in peace.”
7. AND he spoke this parable to certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: “Two men went up into the Miqdásh to pray; the one a rich Pharisee, learned in the Law, and the other a tax collector, who was a sinner.
8. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself; ELOHÍYM, I thank you, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. I fast twice in the week. 1 give tithes of all that I possess.
9. And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breath, saying, ‘ELOHÍYM be merciful to me a sinner.’
10. I tell you that this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; For, every one that exalts himself shall be abased; And, he that humbles himself shall be exalted.”
The Re-generation Of The Soul
1. YAHSHÚA sat in the porch of the Miqdásh, and some came to learn his doctrine, and one said to him, “Master, what do you teach concerning life?”
2. And he said unto them, “Blessed are they who suffer many experiences, for they shall be made perfect through suffering: they shall be as the angels of ELOHÍYM in Heaven and shall die no more, neither shall they be born any more, for death and birth have no more dominion over them.
3. They who have suffered and overcome shall be made Pillars in the Miqdásh of my ELOHÍYM, and they shall go out no more. Truly, I say to you, unless ye be born again of water and of fire, ye cannot see the kingdom of ELOHÍYM.”
4. And a certain Rabbi (Nicodemus) came unto him by night, for fear of the Judæans, and said to him. “How can a man be born again when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born again?”
5. Yahshúa answered, Truly, I say to you, unless a man be born again of flesh and of spiritess, he cannot enter into the kingdom of ELOHÍYM. The wind blows where it lists, and ye hear the sound thereof, but cannot tell from where it comes or where it goes.
6. The light shines from the East all the way to the West. Out of the darkness, the Sun arises and goes down into darkness again; so is it with man, from the ages to the ages.
7. When it comes from the darkness, it is that he has lived before, and when it goes down again into darkness, it is that he may rest for a little while, and thereafter again exist.
8. So, through many changes, ye must be made perfect, as it is written in the book of Job, ‘I am a wanderer, changing place after place and house after house, until I come to the City and Mansion which is eternal.’”
9. And Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” And Yahshúa answered and said to him, ‘Are you a teacher in Israel, and understand not these things? Truly, we speak that which we do know, and bear witness to that which we have seen, and ye receive not our witness.
10. If I have told you of earthly things and ye do not believe, how shall ye believe if I tell you of Heavenly things? No man has ascended into Heaven, but he that descended out of Heaven, even the Son-Daughter of man which is in Heaven.”
Yahshúa Condemns the Ill-Treatment Of Animals
1. AND some of his disciples came and told him of a certain Egyptian, a son of Belial, who taught that it was lawful to torment animals, if their sufferings brought any profit to men.
2. And Yahshúa said to them, “Truly, I say to you, they cannot be righteous, who partake of benefits which are gotten by wronging one of ELOHÍYM’S creatures; Nor, can they touch holy things, or teach the mysteries of the kingdom, whose hands are stained with blood, or whose mouths are defiled with flesh.
3. ELOHÍYM gives the grains and the fruits of the earth for food; And, for righteous man, truly, there is no other lawful sustenance for the body.
4. The robber who breaks into the house made by man is guilty, but they who break into the house made by ELOHÍYM, even of the least of these, are the greater sinners. Wherefore, I say to all who desire to be my disciples, keep your hands from bloodshed and let no flesh enter your mouths, for ELOHÍYM is just and bountiful, who ordains that man shall live by the fruits and seeds of the earth alone.
5. But if any animal suffers greatly, and if its life be a misery to it, or if it be dangerous to you, release it from its life quickly, and with as little pain as you can. Send it forth in love and mercy, but do not torment it, and ELOHÍYM, the Father-Mother, will show mercy to you, as ye have shown mercy to those given into your hands.
6. And whatsoever ye do to the Cast of these my children, ye do it to me. For I am in them and they are in me; Yea, I am in all creatures and all creatures are in me. In all their joys I rejoice, in all their afflictions I am afflicted. Wherefore I say to you: Be ye kind one to another, and to all the creatures of ELOHÍYM.”
7. AND it came to pass the day after, that he came into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and many people.
8. Now when he came near to the gate of the city, behold there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow. And many people of the city were with her.
9. And when the Master saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, “Weep not, your son sleeps.” And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, Arise!”
10. And he that was considered dead sat up and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. And there came an awe upon all. And they glorified ELOHÍYM, saying, “A great prophet is risen up among us; and ELOHÍYM has visited his people.
Seven Parables of the Kingdom of Heaven
1. AGAIN, Yahshúa was sitting under the Fig tree, and his disciples gathered round him, and, round them came a multitude of people to hear him, and said to them, To what shall I liken the Kingdom of Heaven?”
2. And he spoke this parable, saying. “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to a certain seed, small among seeds, which a man takes and sows in his field, but when it is grown, it becomes a great tree which sends forth its branches all around, which again, shooting downward into the earth takes root and grows upward, till the field is covered by the tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof and the creatures of the earth find shelter beneath it.”
3. ANOTHER parable he put forth to them, saying, “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to a great treasure hid in a field, the which when a man finds he hides it, and for joy thereof goes and sells all that he has and buys that field, knowing how great the wealth from it will be.”
4. AGAIN: “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to one pearl of great price, which is found by a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, and the merchant finding it, sells all that he has and buys it, knowing how many more times it is worth than that which he gave for it.”
5. AGAIN: “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened to a woman who takes of the incorruptible leaven and hides it in three measures of meal, till the whole is leavened; And, being baked by fire, becomes one loaf. Or, again: To one who takes a measure of pure wine and pours it into two or four measures of water, till the whole being mingled becomes the fruit of the vine.
6. AGAIN: “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened to a City built foursquare on the top of a high hill, and established on a rock, and strong in its surrounding wall, and its towers and its gates, which lie to the north, and to the south, and to the east, and to the west. Such a city falls not, neither can it be hidden, and its gates are open to all, who, having the keys, will enter therein.
7. AND he spoke another parable, saying: “The Kingdom of Heaven is likened to good seed that man sowed in his field, but in the night, while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat and went his way. But when the blade sprung up and brought forth fruit in the ear, there appeared the tares also. 8. And the servants of the householder came to him and said, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Why then does it have tares?’” And he said to them, “An enemy has done this!” 9. And the servants said to him, “Then, do you desire that we go and gather them up?” But he said, “No, lest perhaps while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the good wheat with them. 10. Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest, I will say to the reapers, ‘Gather up first the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them and enrich the soil but gather the wheat into my barn.’”
11. AND AGAIN, he spoke, saying, “The kingdom of Heaven is likened to the sowing of seed. Behold a sower went forth to sow, and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the fowls of the air came and devoured them. 12. And others fell upon rocky places without much earth, and straightway they sprang up because they had no deepness of earth, and when the sun was risen, they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. 13. And others fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. And others fell upon good ground, ready prepared, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. They who have ears to hear let them hear.”
Yahshúa Expounds His Inner Teaching To The Twelve
1. AND the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to the multitude in parables?” He answered and said to them, “Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of Heaven, but to them it is not given.
2. For whosoever has, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; But, whosoever has not, from him shall be taken away even that which he seems to have.
3. Therefore, I speak to them in parables because they, seeing, see not, and hearing, they hear not, neither do they understand.
4. For in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Yeshayáhw, which said, ‘Hearing ye shall hear and shall not understand and seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive; for this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing and their eyes they have closed, lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted and I should heal them.’
5. But blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear, and your hearts for they understand. For truly I say to you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them, and hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”
6. THEN Yahshúa sent the multitude away and his disciples came to him, saying, “Declare to us the parable of the field.” And he answered and said to them, “He that sows the good seed is the Son of man [Bar Enosh – the Androgynous Prototype of Humanity]; the field is the world, the good seed are the children of the kingdom, but the tares are the children of the unrighteous. The enemy that sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the world, and the reapers are the angels.
7. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire so shall it be in the end of this world. The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which act lawlessly, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire, and they who will not be purified shall be utterly consumed. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the Sun in the kingdom of Heaven.”
8. “HEAR ye also the parable of the sower. The seed that fell by the wayside is like as when any hear the word of the kingdom, and understand it not, then comes the wicked one and catches away that which was sown in their heart. These are they which received seed by the wayside.
9. And they that received the seed into stony places, the same are they that hear the Word and presently with joy receive it. Yet they have not root in themselves but endure only a while, for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the Word, by and by they are offended.
10. They also that received seed among the thorns are they that hear the Word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the Word, and they become unfruitful.
11. But they that receive the seed into the good ground, are they that hear the Word and understand it, who also bear fruit and bring forth, some thirty, some sixty, some a hundredfold. 12.
