1st Century Koinonia: Followers Of The Way!


   

Hear therefore, the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom, and understands it not, then comes the wicked one, and catches away that which was sown in his heart: This is he, which received seed by the wayside! But he that received the seed into stony places; the same is he that hears the word, and anon with joy receives it, yet he has not root in himself, but endures for a while: For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the word; but the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word and he becomes unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that hears the word and understands it; which also bears fruit, and brings forth; some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (Matt 13:18-23)
And, behold, one came and said unto Him: Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And He said unto him: Why do you call Me good? There is none good but One; that is, Elohim! But if you will enter into life, keep the commandments. He said unto him: Which? Yeshua said: You shall do no murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness. Honor your father and your mother. You shall Love your neighbor as yourself. The young man said unto Him: All these things have I kept from my youth up, what do I yet lack? Yeshua said unto him: If you will be perfect, go and sell all that you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven; then come and follow Me! But when the young man heard that saying he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. Then said Yeshua unto His Disciples:
Verily I say unto you that a rich man shall hardly enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. And again I say unto you; it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of Elohim. When His disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying: Who then can be saved? But Yeshua beheld them, and said unto them: With men this is impossible; but with Elohim all things are possible.
Then Peter answered and said unto Him: Behold, we forsook all and followed You; what shall we have therefore? And Yeshua said unto them: Verily I say unto you who have followed Me; in the Regeneration, when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His glory; you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. (Matt 19:16-30) {cf. John Seventeen}
