Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Matthew 13:44
Jesus describes the kingdom of heaven as like unto a treasure hidden in a field or in the following verse, a pearl of great price. I have heard many different explanations of this parable. Let’s see if you can see the same as what I saw here.
First, let’s take a closer look at the field.
Matthew 13:1-23 especially verse 15 and 19
2 Corinthians 4: 6-7
1 Corinthians 3:9
Try answering the following questions:
What is the field?
Where is the treasure hidden?
Now, let’s look at the man who for the joy thereof sold all he had and bought that field.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
1 Peter 1:18-19
Can you identify the man?
What was the price of the field?
