Matthew 13:44 – Parable of the Treasure

MT13:44 “The Realm of Heaven may be compared to[1] a treasure hidden in a field.[2] When a person found that hidden treasure out of sheer joy he went and sold everything he possessed[3] and bought the field.[4]


[1] May be compared to: Something about the Church of Christ is so precious it is worth selling every thing to obtain.

[2] Field: We are back to a field again. This is the third time.

[3] Sold everything he possessed: This is a command Jesus gave to some persons, including his personal apostles (Matthew 19:21; Mark 10:21; Luke 12:32, 33; 18:22). The early Christians actually did this (Acts 4:34, 36). Paul also made such sacrifices (Philippians 3:7).

[4] Bought the field: The lesson may be: sometimes it is worth getting rid of everything to obtain something far more wonderful. The treasure is likely the opportunity of membership in the Christian Church, the realm of profession under the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is a Proverb which says: “Buy truth itself and do not sell it-wisdom and discipline and understanding.” (Proverbs 23:23 NWT) To attain these Christine privileges and their promises it is worth loosing everything to obtain it. Jesus taught: “The one who sacrifices his being for me will gain it.”

Comments on: "Matthew 13:44 – The Nazarene’s Commentary: Parable of the Treasure" (10)

  1. It’s been eons that the LORD had been interested in keeping treasures. When HE told Noah to build an ark, it was essentially to treasure the seed of mankind that will eventually unveil the grand Incarnation of HIMSELF!

    The word ark means: box or chest (for keeping treasures). Of truth, the Church is God’s hidden treasure, kept, even, from seers observation. Hallelujah! I love this, eye-opening, beautiful post. More grace to your elbows. Amen!
