Matthew 13:31-35 NIV

“He told them another parable:
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 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.”
He told them still another parable:
“The kingdom of heaven is like yeast
that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through
the dough.” Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.””

  1. Hi …
    What do you think is meant by being ” washed with water and spirit” in the bible ?
    What is the indirect and indirect or symbolic meaning ?
    If you do not know , please ask about it …

    1. Im sorry too so long to respond!
      Washed with water and spirit refers to baptism after accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior! Put away the old self being born again.

      John 3:3-8NIV Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a]”(G)

      4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”

      5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.(H) 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit.(I) 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[c] must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”[d](J)

      John 14:6-7 NIV Jesus answered, “I am(H) the way(I) and the truth(J) and the life.(K) No one comes to the Father except through me.(L) 7 If you really know me, you will know[b] my Father as well.(M) From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”
