The Narrative of Jesus’ Life
The following teachings of Jesus are among a series of parables about God’s Kingdom.
Reading from the Gospel
Matthew 13:44 (Jesus said,) “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. (ESV)
