Scripture: Matthew 馬太福音13:31-33, 44-52 

31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”33 He told them still another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds[a] of flour until it worked all through the dough.”44“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.47 “Once again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was let down into the lake and caught all kinds 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 righteous 50 and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.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 become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”

31 耶穌對他們講另一個比喻:「天國好比一粒芥菜種子,人把它種在田裏。
32 這種子比其他一切的種子都小,等它長起來卻比任何蔬菜都大;它成為一棵樹,連飛鳥也在它的枝子上搭窩。」
33 耶穌講了另一個比喻:「天國好比麵酵,一個女人拿來放在四十公升的麵裏,使全團麵都發起來。」

44 「天國好比財寶藏在田裏。有人發現了,就把它掩蓋起來,然後很高興地把自己所有的都變賣了,去購買那塊田。」
45 「天國又好比一個商人尋找貴重的珍珠。
46 當他發現了一顆極貴重的珍珠,就去賣掉他所有的一切,來購買那顆珍珠。」
47 「天國又好比魚網撒在湖裏,捕捉各樣的魚類。
48 網一滿,漁夫把它拉上來,坐在岸上把魚兒分開,揀好的放在桶裏,壞的扔掉。
49 今世的末了也要這樣:天使要出去,從好人中把壞人分別出來,
50 投進火爐。在那裏,他們要哀哭,咬牙切齒。」
51 耶穌問他們:「這些話你們都明白嗎?」 他們回答:「都明白。」
52 耶穌說:「這麼說來,每一個經學教師成為天國的門徒,就像一家的主人從他的庫房裏搬出新和舊的東西來。」
