Jesus explains the sower (Mt 13:37-13:37)

“Jesus answered.

‘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.
