Matthew 13:44 (ESV)
The Parable of the Hidden Treasure
44 “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.
This is a short parable and easy to interpret wrong. Different interpretations of this short parable exist. One may naturally
see the man as any man and the treasure as the kingdom that he discovers. However, a more Christological interpretation describes the field as the world, the treasure as you (the hearer), and the man as Christ, who gives up the glory of heaven to win you.
I pray: O Lord, you paid the price for me. Thank you… Amen.
