    I just noticed that the warning in verse 22 about “cares of the world” is very close to the warning in Luke 21:34 about “cares of this life.”

  2. Jean, Jesus gives a unified message. He never goes off script.

    I am so enjoying discovering the connections. Thank you for this teaching!

  4. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    In v. 20 & 21 I think we see the most common state among those who become believers – those who are quick to joyfully receive the word, who just do not understand the importance of what has been done for them / to them (receiving the word and having it change them / born again them) but they allow other things to interfere and they fall away.

    How many times have we seen this – someone who becomes a believer, has all kinds of joy but when you see them 2 years later, they are just like nothing happened. They may say “well, that just did not work out.

    This part of the parable may be to us on how to handle and care for new believers.
