The slaves or servants talk about the weeds (Mt 13:27-13:27)

“The slaves or servants

Of the householder

Came to him.

They said.


Did you not sow good seed

In your field?

Then where

Did these weeds come from?’”


προσελθόντες δὲ οἱ δοῦλοι τοῦ οἰκοδεσπότου εἶπον αὐτῷ Κύριε, οὐχὶ καλὸν σπέρμα ἔσπειρας ἐν τῷ σῷ ἀγρῷ; πόθεν οὖν ἔχει ζιζάνια;


There is no equivalent to this parable in the other synoptic gospels.   Only Matthew has this parable about the good seed and the weeds.  The slaves or servants of this master householder came to him (προσελθόντες δὲ οἱ δοῦλοι τοῦ οἰκοδεσπότου).  They asked the lord of the house if he had not sown good seeds in his field (εἶπον αὐτῷ Κύριε, οὐχὶ καλὸν σπέρμα ἔσπειρας ἐν τῷ σῷ ἀγρῷ;).  They wanted to know where did all these weeds come from (πόθεν οὖν ἔχει ζιζάνια)?  There was no question that this was the master of the house who had slaves or servants (οἱ δοῦλοι) working for him.  They even called him the master of the house “lord” (Κύριε).  However, they were very concerned about the weeds in the grain field.
