Jesus sows "the word"

4:01 And again he began to teach beside the sea ...
  And a vast crowd was led together before him ...
  so that he stepped into a boat sitting in the sea.
  And all the crowd before the sea were on the land.
4:02 And he taught them in many parables ...
  and he said to them in his teaching ... Listen! Perceive! ...
4:03 The one went out sowing to sow.
4:04 And it happened in the sowing ...
  some indeed fell by the way ...
  and the flyers came, and they ate it down.
4:05 And other fell on the rock formation where it did not have much earth ...
  and immediately it sprang out and up, because it had no depth of earth.
4:06 And when the sun rose it was scorched ...
  and because it did not have a root it withered.
4:07 And other fell into the thorn-flowers ...
  and the thorns came up and choked it ...
  and it did not give fruit.
4:08 And others fell into the ideal earth ...
  and it gave fruit stepping up, and increasing, and bearing ...
  one "thirty" ...
  and one "sixty" ...
  and one ... "a hundred."

The Challenge to Solve "the Mystery"

4:09 And he was saying ...Who has ears to hear, let him hear!
4:10 And when he was alone by himself, the ones around him with the twelve were asking him (about) the "parables."
4:11 And he was saying to them, You have been given the "mystery" of the Kingdom of God, ...
  but to those, the ones outside, everything occurs in parables.
4:12 In order that seeing, they may see, ...
  and they may not perceive, ...
  and hearing, they may hear, ...
  and they may not understand, ...
  lest they should turn about, and it be forgiven to them.
4:13 And he says to them, Don't you understand this parable?
  And then how "all the parables" will you come to know?

The Solution

4:14 The one sowing the word sows.
4:15 And these are the ones beside the way where is sown the word, ...
  and when they hear,
  immediately the Satan comes, ...
  and he takes up the word having been sown into them.
4:16 And these are the ones sown on the "rock-like formations," ...
  who whenever they hear the word, ...
  immediately with joy receive it.
4:17 And they do not have a root in themselves but are "short lived," ...
  then pressure comes or persecution because of the word, ...
  immediately they are snared.
4:18 And others are the ones sown into the thorns, ...
  These are the ones having heard the word.
4:19 And the worries of the eternity, ...
  and the deceit of the wealth, ...
  and the lusts about the remaining things,
  coming-in are-together-choking the word, ...
  and it becomes unfruitful.
4:20 And these are the ones upon the ideal earth being sown, ...
  who hear the word, ...
  and are beside receiving it and bearing "fruit," ...
  one "thirty," ...
  and one "sixty," ...
  and one, "a hundred."
