    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:30

    Tambin decía: ¿A qu haremos semejante el Reino de Dios? ¿O con qu parbola le compararemos?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Mark 4:30

    Verse 30. Whereunto shall we liken the
    kingdom of God?] How amiable is this carefulness of Jesus! How instructive to the preachers of his word! He is not solicitous to seek fine turns of eloquence to charm the minds of his auditors, nor to draw such descriptions and comparisons as may surprise them: but studies only to make himself understood; to instruct to advantage; to give true ideas of faith and holiness; and to find out such expressions as may render necessary truths easy and intelligible to the meanest capacities. The very wisdom of God seems to be at a loss to find out expressions low enough for the slow apprehensions of men.

    How dull and stupid is the creature! How wise and good the Creator! And how foolish the preacher who uses fine and hard words in his preaching, which, though admired by the shallow, convey no instruction to the multitude.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 30. And he said , etc..] Still continuing his discourse on this subject, and in order to convey to the minds of his disciples clearer ideas of the Gospel dispensation, the success of the Gospel, and the usefulness of their ministration of it, for their encouragement, how unpromising soever things might then be: whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God, or with what comparison shall we compare it ? It was usual with the Jewish doctors, when about to illustrate anything in a parabolical way to begin with such like questions; as, hmwd rbdh hml , to what is this thing like f52 ? when the answer is to such or such thing, as here.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-34 - These declarations were intended to call the attention of the
    disciple to the word of Christ. By his thus instructing them, they were mad able to instruct others; as candles are lighted, not to be covered, but to be placed on a candlestick, that they may give light to a room. Thi parable of the good seed, shows the manner in which the kingdom of God makes progress in the world. Let but the word of Christ have the plac it ought to have in a soul, and it will show itself in a goo conversation. It grows gradually: first the blade; then the ear; afte that the full corn in the ear. When it is sprung up, it will go forward. The work of grace in the soul is, at first, but the day of small things; yet it has mighty products even now, while it is in it growth; but what will there be when it is perfected in heaven!

    30.
    Peculiar to Mark.

    With what comparison shall we compare it? (en tini authn parabolh qwmen). Lit., In what parable might we put it? Rev., In what parable shall we set it forth? Note the we, taking the hearers, with a fine tact, into consultation.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:30 {How shall we liken?} (pws homoiwswmen?) Deliberative first aorist subjunctive. this question alone in Mark. So with the other question: {In what parable shall we set it forth?} (en tini auten parabolei qwmen;). Deliberative second aorist subjunctive. The graphic question draws the interest of the hearers (_we_) by fine tact. #Lu 13:18f. retains the double question which #Mt 13:31f. does not have, though he has it in a very different context, probably an illustration of Christ's favorite sayings often repeated to different audiences as is true of all teachers and preachers.
