The Parable of the Sower

An Allegory

By

Anthony J. Fejfar, B.A., J.D., Esq., Coif

© Copyright 2008 by Anthony J. Fejfar

Jesus told the crowd this parable: A Sower (farmer) went out to sow (plant)

some wheat in his field. Some seed fell on the path and the birds ate the seed. Some

seed fell on rocky ground and when the sun came out the seed was scorched. Some seed

fell among the thorns and the thorns grew up and choked the wheat. Some seed fell on

good soil and produced a hundred fold. Jesus then explained the parable.

The each wheat plant is a person and the wheat plant represents the person and his

or her Soul. With respect to the seed that fell on the path, and was eaten by the birds,

this represents those persons who choose conventional morality, and who are devoured

by religious demagogues and hypocrites who pretend to be religious authorities.

With respect to the seed that fell on rocky ground and was scorched and withered,

this represents those who choose materialism and logical positivism as their philosophy.

Such persons will be scorched in Hell.

With respect to the seed that fell among the thorns and later the wheat plants

were choked by the thorns, this represents those who choose evil rather than good. Such

persons will be strangled to death by Satan and will end up in Hell.

With respect to the seed that fell on good soil and produced one hundred fold,

this represents those who choose the Individual Good and who Self-Actualize, they will

be successful and end up in Self-Actualizing Heaven.
