Between the Parable of the Tares and its explanation…
All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
“I will open My mouth in parables;
I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.”
This is from Psalm 78, ‘A Contemplation of Asaph.’
Interesting to note that Psalm 73 is also a ‘Psalm of Asaph.’ Is the ‘hidden knowledge’ the same in Psalm 73 and the Parable of the Tares? There are some striking parallels.
