VIII. The Creed – Parable
Jesus taught in parables. Thirty one such parables are recorded in the gospel.
In this window, the parable of the shower, Matthew 13:3-9, is depicted.
The hand scatters the seed in planting. The birds are eating that which fell beside the path; the sun is withering the plants which sprang up from the seed which fell on the rocky ground; the weeds are choking the plants which grew from the seeds which fell among them.
The good ears which came from the seeds which fell in the good soil stand firm and strong.
