The Hope Canteen Podcast Episode 15: The Kingdom of Heaven Is Like…

The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed... it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches. -- Jesus (Matthew 13:31-32)

Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52 (Year A, Proper 12)

Every week, your hosts have been sitting around the table and talking about the Bible reading for the upcoming Sunday. This week, Jesus gives a series of short metaphors that describe something of the Kingdom of Heaven: it’s like a mustard seed, yeast mixed with flour, a treasure hidden in a field, a pearl of great value, a net thrown into the sea.
