Matthew 13:46-56 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

The Parable of the Net

47 "Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like1 a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds2 of fish. 48 When it was full, the fishermen pulled it up on the shore. Then they sat down and collected the good fish in baskets, but threw the bad away. 49 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous3 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.4 51 "Have you understood all these things?" Jesus asked. "Yes," they replied. 52 He said to them, "Therefore every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old."

A Prophet Without Honor

13:54-58pp -- Mk 6:1-6

53 When Jesus had finished these parables,5 he moved on from there. 54 Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue,6 and they were amazed.7 "Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" they asked. 55 "Isn't this the carpenter's son?8 Isn't his mother's9 name Mary, and aren't his brothers10 James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren't all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?"
