Seeds are a vast complex subject found in the Bible. God uses natural seed concepts and applies them to spiritual things in repeated references found in the Bible. In learning the concepts of this parable we can transfer much of that knowledge to other parables that Jesus taught us. I have been going through the Bible showing you several different things that God calls seeds. Here is the original list again:. These are of course not every type of seed mentioned in the Bible, only some of the ones that I wanted to show you. We have gone through and reviewed some verses about natural seeds in Genesis and learned some applicable laws that apply to every type of seed.

Unless A Seed Should Fall to the Ground and DieThis parable is used by Jesus to teach them three things. First, he teaches them that he must die. Secondly, he shows them God is in control. Finally, he shows them that his death has purpose.
The Apostle Paul also says: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved from " https: Thus it is pretty of much significance that when Jesus gave up His Spirit, many saints were resurrected and were seen on the streets of Jerusalem Matt But away from simply looking at it quantitatively, it also pretty brings us many lessons in terms of quality.
For apart from having many come to Jesus the billions of Christians , there is the part that He made it pretty real that there is life after death.
Unless a seed falls to the ground and dies Truly, truly, I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a seed; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Berean Literal Bible Truly, truly, I say to you, unless the grain of wheat, having fallen into the ground, should die, it abides alone; but if it should die, it bears much fruit. For sure, I tell you, unless a seed falls into the ground and dies, it will only be a seed. If it dies, it will give much grain. NLT. I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat is planted in the soil and dies, it remains alone. But its death will produce many new kernels—a plentiful harvest of new lives. NMB.That His death and His subsequent resurrection brought Him Jesus indisputable glory, but it brought us His followers assurance that that He had resurrected which only comes after death , if we yield to Him in faith, He surely brings us eternal life John 3: By what He went through, Jesus assured us that the mortality of the flesh is not an end in itself.
Thus, much as those who refuse to embrace Jesus will resurrect to eternal damnation, the rest of us who have accepted and followed Him will resurrect to eternity in heaven with the Father John 5: Thus because Jesus accepted to die so He could resurrect, should make us have the confidence of life after death, though ideally the fear of death the state of unconsciousness can't completely be done away with.
Jesus had pleaded with the Father to avoid it death Matt Yet He had to live up to His statement; that a seed can only bear much fruit only after it is planted and dies so it can give way to a new bearing.
There was no another way for Jesus to do it. Equally so, there is no another way for you to go to heaven unless you have faced physical death, or you are caught up in the rapture if you are sure you unceasingly stand well with the Lord. But this also teaches us that in the literal world and life we are, when we came to Christ, it is pretty a requirement that we die to the former self and thereby assume another life in Jesus Christ.
The kind of life that allows us to bear fruit. Jesus came to save us from the sin which we inherited by being the offspring of Adam the first man to live on earth.

Verily, verily I say unto you, unless a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. Thus if we insist to remain in the life that we lived before we met Christ, then we can't bear fruit. And if we can't bear fruit, then we can't be accepted by the Father. Thus when a person is Born Again, he is a new creature and all the old has gone and the new has come 2Corinthians 5: In this then, we begin to live a life that is not of us, but which is of Christ which enables us to live profitably and to the glory of God.
UNLESS A SEED FALLS TO THE GROUND AND DIESUnless a seed falls to the ground and dies An ambassador is simply a copycat of what he represents.
Having not been like Him Jesus or God for that matter , by coming to Him, we are given an opportunity to share in both; His suffering though we may not have to hang like He did and victories. When we come to Him, we accept that He died for the right cause and then He Jesus exchanges life for death for us Galatians 2: Jesus was resurrected from the dead to new life, so that each person who believes in him, would receive the gift of eternal life, by the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus is the first fruits example. When we hear the gospel message and come to faith in Jesus, we are united with Christ in his death.
