Here's some contribution from me, if u don't mind..... Matthews:13....... but 1st my interpretation:-
There were 4 major books given through Prophets
Injeel (Gospel of Jesus)
of Zuboor feel on "side-ways". There are no signs of Zuboor
left... fell in "side-way"
couldn't grow at all...
Seeds of Torah
fell on those who "they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand"
.... Grow for a while then withered... Faith did not
develop deep roots
hearts..... This is re-confirmed in Matthews:13:15"For this people’s(jews) heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Seeds of Injeel
(Gospel of Jesus) fell among "thorns"
of Romans etc***
, who chocked it by supporting trinitarians over unitarians...... since trinitarians had care-of-the-world
, they developed political contacts with Romans & true gospel-of-jesus became unfruitful
Seeds of Quran
fell on fertile ground..... grew many folds.... "some hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold"...... Remember Angel appeared to Hagar when she left Abraham's house after being angry with Sarah..... Angels promised Hagar that her seed would grow many-folds like grains of sand & like stars of sky.....Same promise was made to Abraham BUT no such promise was made to Sarah..... So infact, promise to Abraham was to be fulfilled through Hagar; mother of ismail(the father of muslims)......
And he spake many things unto them in parables
, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow
4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell
by the way side
, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
5 Some fell upon stony places(heart of bani-israel)
, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness
of earth(no deep faith in hearts)
6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root
, they withered
7 And some fell among thorns(oppression of Romans/jews & later of trinitarians*** )
; and the thorns sprung up(trinitarians grew in political power & developed contacts with Romans while unitarians were religious minded NOT interested in political power)
, and choked
8 But other fell into good ground
, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold
, some sixtyfold
, some thirtyfold
9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side
20 But he that received the seed into stony places
, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
22 He also that received seed among the thorns
is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world
, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke
the word, and he becometh unfruitful
23 But he that received seed into the good ground
is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it
; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold
, some sixty, some thirty.
