To Grace_accepted......you said: "The good soil was predestined by the farmer to bear fruit but the other types of soil were not.  Do you believe that this sheds any light on predestination?"

No, I do not see "predestination" in these passages.but rather the different types of faith that is received.... These parables were for the benefit of the Jewish people present at that time although it applies to our situation today.

I know it is possible to extend a metaphor too far but if the seed represents the Kingdom of God and the soil rpresents the mind of the receiver then we could reasonably extrapolate the field as being the sowers predetermined target for his seed.

Certainly he had put thought and effort into preparing that section of ground for his seed. The other types of ground were seeded incidentally because of his efforts aimed at the tilled soil.  The ground could not prepare itself and depended on the farmer to be made ready to receive the seed.

Just some thoughts
