The Parable of the Soils

Mark 4:1-20

The subject matter of Mark 4 has challenged the thinking of believers of all ages. As Jesus' ministry unfolded, there were different responses to Him. Those varied responses raise an important question: If Jesus was in fact Messiah - the Son of God - then why didn't everyone embrace Him? Why don't all people today embrace Him?

In The Parable of the Soils, Tom Pennington addresses that question. Christ Himself said this parable was the most important of all His parables. Not only does it contain foundational truths, it's an apologetic for the reason not everyone accepts the claims of Jesus Christ. As Tom teaches, it introduces some of the deepest theological significance in the entire New Testament. So much so, it deals with how you respond to everything else that Jesus teaches.
