I have been joining for three years in JOD course. In bibliodrama lesson, I got many things with different sides. Every generation always give the different nuance to describe and to explain about the meaning of parable. These year, also unique, every group have different explanations to describe what mean of the parable.
Awesome is one word that I could say when I was seeing the Bibliodrama. Hope through practice it into drama, the participant also learn in their heart and apply it in daily life.
The Sower [The Four Soils]
(Mt 13:3-9,18-23, The New American Bible – Saint Joseph Edition, Personal size)
18 “Hear then the parable of the sower:
#1. The First Soil: On the path
19 The seed swon on the path is the one who hears the word of the kingdom, without understanding it, and the evil one comes and steals away what was sown in his heart.
#2. The Second Soil: On rocky ground
20 The seed sown on rocky ground is the one who hears the word and receives it at once with joy;
21 but he has no roots and lasts only for a time. When some tribulation or persecution comes because of the word, he immediately falls away.
#3. The Third Soil: Among Thorns
22 The seed among thorns is the one who hears the word, but then worldly anxiety and the lure of riches choke the word and it bears no fruit.
#4. The Fourth Soil: On rich soil
23 But the seed sown on the rich oil is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold.”
“The Bible is God’s love letter to us.”
*It can also be properly called “The Parable Of The Four Soils” or “The Parable Of The Seed”.
