The offer of the Messianic kingdom had been rejected, and Jesus has begun to teach about this new "mystery kingdom" in parables. We refer to it as the "mystery" kingdom because there was no previous direct revelation about it in scripture. It was a totally new kingdom, and as such, needed some explanation as to what form it was going to take, and what it was going to be like. Jesus began to teach in Parables, and these first nine parables he taught on that day answers some questions about this new kingdom. We will look at three questions about this kingdom, and see how Jesus provides his Answers in Agriculture.
