Matthew 13 and the 7 Letters, Part 2

“How do the Kingdom parables (Matthew 13) relate to the epistles from Christ to the Churches?”

Parable: The Tares and the Wheat

Church: Smyrna

A sower plants a bunch of wheat, but an enemy (Satan) comes along and plants tares, which are an annoying weed.  The angels can’t sort it out until the end.

In other words, there is sin in the world, and there are people who do Satan’s work of making life really rough for the believers.  The Persecuted Church had it really rough

  1. Tares resemble wheat until they both mature, then the wheat bows down because it has a full head, the tares are empty headed and do not bow. The wheat is a symbol of the Christian because we bow to Christ. The Tare is the non Christian. They do not have Christ so they are empty headed and do not bow to Him. Or so this story has been related to me.
    In Christ,
