Parables of Jesus: The Hidden Treasure

Parables of Jesus: The Hidden Treasure
Lluís Raventós
Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (A)
Gospel text
Mt 13:44-52
Jesus said to his disciples: "The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we hear about the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus spent time and effort to explain this "treasure" to us. But it is something so inspiring that the Master could only describe it with parables or comparisons. -The Kingdom of Jesus is much more beautiful than we can imagine. But we know something fundamental: it is the treasure of our life, which we can already start to savor it down here. Are you going to change it for some mundane "little treasure"?
