Mat 13:33-35 “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven (No imperative)

Imperative: Mat 13:33-35 “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven (No imperative)
Context: Mat 13:33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”

Mat 13:34 All this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable.

Mat 13:35 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”

Mat 13:24-30 v30 Let both grow together … Gather the weeds first and bind them

Imperative: Mat 13:24-30 v30 Let both grow together … Gather the weeds first and bind them
Context: Mat 13:24 Another parable he put before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field;

Mat 13:25 but while men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.

Mat 13:26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also.

Mat 13:27 And the servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then has it weeds?’

Mat 13:28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’

Mat 13:29 But he said, ‘No; lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them.

Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.'”

Matthew 13:18-23. 18 “Hear then the parable of the sower… “

Imperative: Matthew 13:18-23. 18 “Hear then the parable of the sower… ”
Context: Mat 13:18  “Hear then the parable of the sower.

Mat 13:19  When any one hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in his heart; this is what was sown along the path.

Mat 13:20  As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy;

Mat 13:21  yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away.

Mat 13:22  As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the delight in riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.

Mat 13:23  As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the word and understands it; he indeed bears fruit, and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”
