Making Ready for Matthew 13

Tonight we will study The Sower at 630pm at the American Tobacco Trail Bridge over Lakewood Avenue. Van Gogh's masterpiece is inspired by a parable from Matthew 13 about seeds.
Some fell on the road and the birds ate it.
Some fell in the gravel. It sprouted quickly and withered quickly.
Some fell in the weeds and was choked by those weeds.
Some fell on good earth and produced a harvest beyond the farmer's wildest dreams.

Who is the farmer? Who are the seeds? What types of soil are we talking about?
