Luke13: 10-17

Luke gives us a clue to the hidden meaning of the parables of the mustard seed and the yeast by linking them with the healing of the crippled woman. Although usually seen as parables of growth, often of the church growing from humble beginnings, they are more likely proclaiming the immediacy of God's kingdom, of the inauguration of God's eternal reign in Christ. So, these parables proclaim that "the day" is upon us; a mighty tree stands before us, the bread is ready for the oven. The powers of darkness have been defeated, God's Sabbath rest is here - "the kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe the gospel."

Luke 12:13-21

The request for Jesus to judge an inheritance matter leads him to warn two warring brothers of the danger of greed. Jesus then supports this warning with a saying which makes the point that living is not possessing, which fact he illustrates in the parable of the Rich Fool.
