‘The one who sows
The good seed
Is the Son of Man.’”
ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν Ὁ σπείρων τὸ καλὸν σπέρμα ἐστὶν ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου·
Only Matthew has this explanation about the parable of the weeds that was earlier in this chapter, 13:24-30. Jesus answered his disciples (ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν), via Matthew. The sower of the good seeds was the Son of Man (Ὁ σπείρων τὸ καλὸν σπέρμα ἐστὶν ὁ Υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου), plain and simple. In other words, Jesus, the Son of Man, is the great householder who sows only good seeds, the word of the kingdom of heaven.
