35 He did this in order to fulfill the prophecy:

I will speak to you in allegories.
    I will reveal secrets that have been concealed
    since before the foundation of the world.[a]

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.”

37 He answered, “The man who sowed his field with good seed represents me, the Son of Man.


  1. Matthew 13:35 As translated from the Aramaic. The Hebrew Matthew is “I will speak with riddles from ancient times.” See Ps. 78:2; Prov. 25:2. A parable has hidden meaning. Everything stands for something else. Jesus interprets and unlocks the meaning of the Word to us.
  2. Matthew 13:36 This was likely in Capernaum.
