Manini to Monstrous Matthew 13:31-33
Manini • AKA Convict Tang • In Hawaiian means “small, tiny”
Matthew 13:31-32 31 He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches."
Kingdom like a mustard seed • Mustard seed and tree
Kingdom is like a mustard seed • Mustard seed and tree • Birds of the air finding rest in the tree • Jews expected the kingdom to appear with power and glory Jesus point is that the kingdom will start small but gradually grow large
Matthew 13:33 33 He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough."
Kingdom is like yeast • Yeast will permeate the entire dough Jesus’ point is that the kingdom will start small but gradually permeate the entire person
