					“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was
scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it
was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. Some
  fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants
withered because they had no moisture. Other
 seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it
 and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on
   good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a
hundred times more than was sown.” When he
 said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to
                hear, let them hear.”
                                        - Luke 8:5-8
“This is the meaning of the parable: the seed is
               the word of God.”
                                       - Luke 8:11
“Jesus did not expect the end of the world in
 the sense of destruction of the cosmos. He
   expected a divine transforming miracle.”
                                   - E.P. Sanders
 “When [the spies were in] the Valley of Eshkol
they cut off a branch bearing a single cluster of
   grapes. Two of them carried it on a pole
                 between them.”
                                    - Numbers 13:23
  ““There will be no more death or sadness.
 There will be no more crying or pain. Things
are no longer the way they used to be . . . I am
          making everything new!”.’”
                                 - Revelation 21:4-5
