Parables about the Kingdom of Heaven

Bible 1
Jesus always used stories and illustrations when speaking to the crowds. On one occasion Jesus said, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field.
Bible 2
‘It is the smallest of all seeds.
Bible 3
‘But it becomes the largest of garden plants. It grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.’

Bible 4
Jesus also used this illustration. ’The Kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread.’
Bible 5
‘Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.’
Bible 6
Jesus also explained, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field.

Bible 7
‘In his excitement, he hid it again then sold everything he owned to get enough money to buy the field.’
Bible 8
Jesus got people thinking by saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls.
Bible 9
‘When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold everything he owned and bought it!’
