"THE FIELD IS THE WORLD"

From the October 1965 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Matthew records that when his disciples asked Christ Jesus to explain to them the parable of the tares and wheat, "He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; the field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom" ( 13:37, 38 ). And then he spoke to them not of countries or races which might have a better claim than some others to the harvest of good, but of human beings everywhere.
