Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven

& LOY Commentary 27 Comments

Did Jesus offer a rationale for teaching with the aid of story parables in this pericope, or does the Mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven saying celebrate the dawning of the new age of redemption?

Matt. 13:11-15; Mark 4:11-12; Luke 8:10

(Huck 91; Aland 123; Crook 145)[1]

Updated: 12 November 2021

וַיֹּאמֶר לָכֶם נִתַּן לָדַעַת אֶת רָזֵי מַלְכוּת שָׁמַיִם וְלִשְׁאָר בִּמְשָׁלִים כִּי רָאוֹ לֹא רָאוּ וְשָׁמוֹעַ לֹא שָׁמְעוּ וְלֹא הֵבִינוּ

Then Yeshua said to his emissaries: “God has permitted you to experience the mysteries the Kingdom of Heaven had in store. But until now those mysteries were only hinted at through the symbolic language of the prophets, for ‘no eye could see, and no ear could hear, and no heart could understand’ beforehand the full scope of redemption the Kingdom of Heaven would bring.[2]

    You have made this pericope aline with rest of Yeshua’s “Gospel of the Kingdom”. You have been helping me understand the Gospels since I first read “Understanding the Difficult words of Jesus” in the 1980’s.
