What is the kingdom like? MARK 4:26–34 by Sr Angilla Corraspé OP
For the past two Sundays, the gospel reveals Jesus’ concern with the poor and the criteria for family, with discipleship, and relationship with other and with God.
In this week’s gospel, His focus is on the Kingdom; his question, what is the kingdom like? There are two images of the kingdom provided. He said a man throws seed on the land. When he is awake, he sees the seed is sprouting and growing. How? He does not know.
