TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (MATTHEW 13:31-35)

30 Jul

A MUSTARD SEED BECOMES A TREE SO THAT THE BIRDS OF THE AIR SHELTER IN ITS BRANCHES.

Jesus put a parable before the crowds. “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the biggest shrub of all and becomes a tree so that the birds of the air come and shelter in its branches.”

He told them another parable, “The kingdom of heaven is like the yeast a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour till it was leavened all through.”

In all this Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables; indeed, he would never speak to them except in parables. This was to fulfil the prophecy:

I will speak to you in parables
and expound things hidden since the foundation of the world.

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
