A Field, A Tree, & Three Measures of Dough

David denHartog teaches from Matthew 13:24-43, part of the “What’s in the Box?” series.  The people of Israel were longing for and expecting a Messiah.  However, the Jesus that came wasn’t what they were expecting and so they rejected him and the offer of a physical kingdom was withdrawn.  Matthew 13 describes the new form of the kingdom that was offered.  In verses 24-43, there are two dominant themes: the great growth of the kingdom of heaven on earth and the growth of evil within it.
