Bible Quote 13:31 He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field.
13:32 Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches."
13:33 He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough."
Bible Quote 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
13:45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.

13:46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
13:47 "Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds of fish.
13:48 When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad away.
13:49 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous
13:50 and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

13:51 "Have you understood all these things?" Jesus asked. "Yes," they replied.
13:52 He said to them, "Therefore every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old."
