THE SOWER_Part 2 (Parable of the Sower) – www.INSPIRE4.com
Why did Jesus stress so strongly concerning the manner in which he taught, being a means for some to understand, but causing many NOT to understand? Jesus said this parable was a great "MYSTERY", but yet he explained enough of it to his disciples, that it gives us keys, so we can be sure what IS TRUE concerning it! This is part two in our study, and uses once again live actors to portray the life and times as an illustration from ancient Israel. In Luke 20:45-47, Jesus spoke something that would cause anger among many religious people still today (even as it did back when that text took place). QUOTE:
45 Then in the audience of all the people he said unto his disciples,
46 Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
47 Which devour widows' houses, and for a shew make long prayers: the same shall receive greater damnation.
Many religious people today would have condemned Jesus also. He was NOT a lover of long robes, nor did he seek any praise of men! He dressed in the manner that Godly men and prophets had been dressing even long before he came to this earth. Humble! He was much more like David (whose wife, the daughter of Saul, condemned him strongly for dressing so 'humble', and thus God punished her by making her barren and unable to have children), and thus Jesus was described and prophesied as coming, and he did come, AS THE "SON OF DAVID" (of the tribe of Judah). David typified Jesus in many ways! A great deal of study has been put forth in order to make this video presentation as authentic as possible, in presenting the customs and details of those times.
