Matthew 13:44-58

ESV 44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. MSG 44 "God's kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field for years and then accidently found by a trespasser. The finder is ecstatic - what a find! - and proceeds to sell everything he owns to raise money and buy that field. ESV 45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, MSG 45 "Or, God's kingdom is like a jewel merchant on the hunt for excellent pearls. ESV 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. MSG 46 Finding one that is flawless, he immediately sells everything and buys it. ESV 47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind. MSG 47 "Or, God's kingdom is like a fishnet cast into the sea, catching all kinds of fish. ESV 48 When it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into containers but threw away the bad. MSG 48 When it is full, it is hauled onto the beach. The good fish are picked out and put in a tub; those unfit to eat are thrown away. ESV 49 So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous MSG 49 That's how it will be when the curtain comes down on history. The angels will come and cull the bad fish ESV 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. MSG 50 and throw them in the garbage. There will be a lot of desperate complaining, but it won't do any good." ESV 51 "Have you understood all these things?" They said to him, "Yes." MSG 51 Jesus asked, "Are you starting to get a handle on all this?" They answered, "Yes." ESV 52 And he said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old." MSG 52 He said, "Then you see how every student well-trained in God's kingdom is like the owner of a general store who can put his hands on anything you need, old or new, exactly when you need it." ESV 53 And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there, MSG 53 When Jesus finished telling these stories, he left there, ESV 54 and coming to his hometown he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? MSG 54 returned to his hometown, and gave a lecture in the meetinghouse. He made a real hit, impressing everyone. "We had no idea he was this good!" they said. "How did he get so wise, get such ability?" ESV 55 Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? MSG 55 But in the next breath they were cutting him down: "We've known him since he was a kid; he's the carpenter's son. We know his mother, Mary. We know his brothers James and Joseph, Simon and Judas. ESV 56 And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?" MSG 56 All his sisters live here. Who does he think he is?" ESV 57 And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household." MSG 57 They got their noses all out of joint. ESV 58 And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief. MSG 58 But Jesus said, "A prophet is taken for granted in his hometown and his family." He didn't do many miracles there because of their hostile indifference.
