Jesus illustrations were right on the ball, weeds were sown right in among the wheat but they were allowed to grow togeather and in time the weeds would be gathered up and identified,So Jesus’ parables also had to be sifted as they were relating to the Pagan beliefs?
Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
You may be surprised to learn that Jesus expected his congregation to disappear from view and that he would allow such a sad situation to continue for centuries.
"The weeds" were counterfeit Christians who infiltrated the early Christian congregation.
As predicted by Jesus Christ, his genuine disciples were hidden from sight as counterfeit Christians flourished.
