Matthew 13:34-36 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Prophecy and Parables
34 Whenever Jesus addressed the crowds, he always spoke in allegories. He never spoke without using parables. 35 He did this in order to fulfill the prophecy:
I will speak to you in allegories.
Jesus Explains the Parables
36 Jesus left the crowds and went inside the house where he was staying.[b] Then his disciples approached him and asked, “Please explain the deeper meaning of the parable of the weeds growing in the field of wheat.”
