Parables and the Kingdom

Sermon Text:
Matthew 13:1-53; Mark 4: 1-34; Luke 8:4-18

Why do professional baseball pitchers cover their mouths with their gloves when talking on the mound to their catcher or infielders? To hide their strategy from people who would counter it if they knew. On the day of rejection, the nation of Israel officially rejected Jesus as their Messiah. Many things changed in Jesus’ ministry after the day of rejection. He, too, began to hide the truth from people who didn’t want it. He didn’t use a baseball glove; He used something much more effective.
