Resumen

VAN ECK, Ernest. The harvest and the kingdom: An interpretation of the Sower (Mk 4:3b-8) as a parable of Jesus the Galilean. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.1, pp.01-10. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V70I1.2715.

This article attempts to read the parable of the Sower (Mk 4:3b-8) as a parable of the historical Jesus. In this reading, the focus is different from almost all previous interpretations of the parable. It is proposed that the Sower should not be understood in terms of realistic agricultural practices in 1st century Palestine, but in terms of the realism of the political, social and economic world in which the parable is told by Jesus. The conclusion reached is that the parable asks its first hearers to align themselves with the kingdom of God, and describes what the results of this decision can be. In a world with little choice, the parable gives a vision on how to cope in an exploitative world.
