Parable of the Tares Explained
Interwoven Gospels

Then, having dismissed the multitudes, Jesus went into the house. And His disciples came to Him saying, "Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field." And He, answering, said, "He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; but the tares are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil: and the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. "As, therefore, the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so it shall be in the end of the age. The Son of man will send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and those that commit sin, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He that hath ears, let him hear."
