In this groundbreaking study we take an in-depth look at the Old Testament source (Ezekiel 17) for Jesus’ parable of the mustard seed. As we show, Jesus was telling his first century listeners that those who would receive him would receive the kingdom, and those who received the kingdom would be delivered from the judgment that was about to come. The kingdom of heaven was indeed like a mustard seed, but that mustard see was Jesus who has become the tree of life. In him is the establishment of the kingdom, the restoration of the remnant, and the gathering of all nations. There is no other study like this on the parable of the mustard seed!
