Matt 13:32

Date: Sat Aug 22 1998 - 10:58:50 EDT

In the parable of the mustard seed, Jesus describes the mustard seed as
MIKROTERON than all LACANWN. Do we take this to mean that the mustard seed is
very small as opposed to being large or that it is smallest when compared to
other seeds? Are we being led to focus on a characteristic of the mustard
seed (being small) or on the relationship of the mustard seed to the other
seeds (being smallest)?
