  • “Sower and the Soils” (1-9; explained 18-23) — “Productive Nature of the Kingdom” requires believers to have responsive hearts to God’s Word.
  • “Tares among the Wheat” (24-30; explained 36-43) and the “Bad Fish among the Good Fish” (47-50) — “Permissive Nature of the Kingdom” requires true believers to recognize the counterfeit nature of much of the church’s visible membership.
  • “Mustard Seed and the Tree” (31-32) and the “Leaven and the Meal” (33) — “Progressive Nature of the Kingdom” requires believers to accept small beginnings before large results.
  • “Hidden Treasure” (44) and “Pearl of Great Price” (45-46) — “Priceless Nature of the Kingdom” requires believers to value the kingdom as worth a total dedication of their lives.
