The Parable of the Growing Seed
“He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
For the Research and Ministry Preparation class I am currently taking at seminary, I have to write a 10-12 exegesis paper on Mark 4:26-29.
This is good because this, as well as my other assignments, is making me did into the Word more than I normally do. But bad because this passage has been written about so many times I am at a loss to find a new angle.
Anyway, if you have any thoughts, please share. The readers of this blog always have something interesting and relevant to say and I am hopeful that is the case here.
And no, I’m not asking anyone to do my homework for me just, perhaps, give me a prompt or an idea that I might use to get the ball rolling.
