    Case in point, the Physical but Spiritually disobedient seed of Abraham...

    John 8:37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you. John 8:38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
    Joh 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?

    When they said they had never been in bondage that proved they were not the children of Jacob, but the children of Esau. Isn't that physical rather than spiritual?
    Gen 36:2 Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan;
    Looks like daughters of Cain to me.

    Joh 8:52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
    Joh 8:53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
    Joh 8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
    Joh 8:55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
    Joh 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.

    The field (analogy) is (represents) the (literal) world, and so on...

    Heck, even the word "world" there, is a figure of speech meant to communicate a literal reality through a word by how that word is used there - as a figure of speech.

    "What world are you from?"

    "What's in your wallet?"

    "Wake up and smell the coffee."

    Each of which is apropos to what I am attempting to point out to you - that you are "off by a country mile" on the actual role of parables, as used in Scripture.

    "Get with the program."

    And so on...

    Rom. 5:6-8.

    World as we know it.

    What part of the scripture below do you not understand beside 'world'? It seems self explanatory to me.

    Exactly what I said about the intended sense of His use of the word "world" there.

    Pay closer attention to another's post, next time.



    Romans 5:6-8.
