Jesus told a parable in chapter four about different soils. In chapter five, people trusting Jesus act out the good soil. Today, Colin Adams shows how, in chapter six, the reverse is true.
Here, God’s message through his prophets is rejected. First, Jesus himself is rejected as the ‘Home-town prophet’. Then, Jesus sends out his disciples as ‘Travelling prophets’, with instructions on how to cope with rejection. Finally, John the Baptist suffers the ultimate rejection and becomes the ‘Dead prophet’.
