Parable of the Sower

Four Types of Soil

English Translation

Four Frames (from right to left):

Frame 1: The seed is the word of God. Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved (Lk 8:12).
In the seal: Be alert to the Devil.

Frame 2: Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away (Lk 8:13).
In the seal: Shallow dirt, ungrounded root

Frame 3: The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature (Lk 8:14)
In the seal: worries, [?]

Frame 4: But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop (Lk 8:15).
In the seal: Yielding a hundred times.
