Text Information:

All three synoptic gospels record both the telling and the explanation of Jesus’ parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3–8, 18–23/Mark 4:3–8, 14–20/Luke 8:5–8, 11–15). Because the seed equals “the word,” Jesus (as the Word made flesh) becomes the Seed in this expansion of the parable.
