Akhi Rob!

I was pondering your post concerning the Janus parallelism of Mathew 13-- buds & birds <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
Well, I was reading parts of Arthur Pink's online book entitled "The Prophetic Parables of Matthew 13."
He considers the birds 'agents of Satan' that have crept into the Church. If that's the case, the buds could be a hidden representation of true apostolic authority ... Aaron's rod that budded {Numbers 17:5, 8} vs. Korah, murmuring Israelites who complained about the company of Korah being killed, etc.

The 'spin' that many modern commentators put on the Matthew 13 parables may not be right after all. This online chapter from Arthur Walkington Pink will show you what I mean...

What think ye? Do we have a rich symbolism in the 'buds' vs. 'birds' scenario?

Shlama Akhi Larry and Rob,

Larry - as I hope you figured, the above 'Rob' is not me. I'm concerned because I don't want anyone to mix us up.
Rob, perhaps you could reregister with your last name too? THis would be tremendously helpful so as not to create any more mix ups.
