The parable of the net - Matthew 13:47-50

The parable of the net is another simple story. However, it is very important. We should understand what it teaches us. Fishermen (men who catch fish) put a net in the water. They catch all kinds of fish, good and bad. At last they pull the net to the shore, and separate the fish. They keep the good ones but they throw away the bad ones. Jesus says that it will be like that at the end of the age. *Angels will separate the *righteous people from the wicked people. Jesus says that there will be severe punishment for the wicked people.

Matthew 13:49, 50 This is how it will be at the end of the age. The *angels will come and separate the wicked people from the *righteous people. They will throw the wicked people into a great fire. Many people will weep and be very sorry.

The explanation of this parable

Jesus explained that God will *judge everyone in the future. He will separate the *righteous people from the wicked people. Jesus said many things about this event. So it is extremely important to accept the *gospel offer while it is still available.
