The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
In today's Scripture passage, Jesus tells another parable that highlights the parable of the sower that He had just told and explained. He reiterates that true followers of Him will be clearly evident. He also emphasized the importance of His hearers to listen carefully to what He says, and then to heed it.
