Parables Of Jesus

Matthew 13:44 King James Version (KJV)

44. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.


Explanation of The Bible Parable - Treasure hid in a field - This parable illustrates the value of the heavenly treasure, and the effort that should be made to secure it. The finder of the treasure in the field was ready to part with all that he had, ready to put forth untiring labor, in order to secure the hidden riches. So the finder of heavenly treasure will count no labor too great and no sacrifice too dear, in order to gain the treasures of truth...The field containing the treasure represents the Holy Scriptures. And the gospel is the treasure. Taken from Christ's Object Lessons, by EGW, page 104.

 For 2 Corinthians 4:3 King James Version (KJV) states -

3. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

Explanation of The Bible Parable - Goodly pearls -

Matthew 13:45-46 King James Version (KJV)

45. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

46. Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.


The merchantman represents a class who were sincerely desiring truth... The merchantman bought it at the price of all that he had...

We are to give ourselves to Christ, to live a life of willing obedience to all His requirements. All that we are, all the talents and capabilities we possess, are the Lord's, to be consecrated to His service. When we thus give ourselves wholly to Him, Christ, with all the treasures of heaven, gives Himself to us. We obtain the pearl of great price. Taken from Christ's Object Lessons, by EGW, pg 116.
