Parable of the Mustard Seed

Subject of a parable of Our Lord (Matthew 13). It takes only two texts, less than 70 words, to tell how the seed, least of all seeds, “becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come, and dwell in the branches thereof.” This is a prophecy as well as a parable of the growth of the Church, as described in Vassall-Phillips’ book The Mustard Seed, London, 1912.
