I'm very interested in the Parables of Jesus too....always have been since childhood!
One of my favorite books is The Parables of Jesus: Complete Teachings From the Uranita Bookhttps://www.amazon.com/Parables-Jesus-C ... d+parables
Wonderfully illustrated and top quality book!! There are a few parables in the UB that weren't included.
Also, if interested, is the Foundation's Study Aids related to the parables:https://www.urantia.org/jesus/part-iii-parables
As to the parable posted: I found the explanation by Jesus of the original parable of the sower (same Paper Section 1) to be very enlightening. That one is not about the seed or the harvest but about the experience and expectation of the sower. I think it encouraging to be taught that the act is ours but the results are God's and we should not worry much about where or when we sow our seeds of service and love and kindness and generosity and sympathy and hope....the sharing and caring seeds we sow as we walk by.
Some seed will reap 1000 or 100 fold and some will land on rock or clay and not sprout. It's not up to us to worry about, cultivate, or measure the harvest to come, but only to sow seeds of hope and faith wherever we go.
As to the tares and wheat parable of the sower: I think it a real warning to the enemies of truth and the wolves in sheep's clothing. Do you remember the warning about the mill stone? Those who sow doubt and doom and discord intentionally play a dangerous, even deadly game. For their hearts and intentions are known and what they do is evil and sinful....they are called enemies in the parable!! For a reason.
I certainly agree that those who throw out some tare seed as they pass by (who doesn't?) And who do so simply by error and immaturity and lack of wisdom which certainly contributes a certain amount of tare seed to life.
I believe that this TruthBook study group is a truth/wheat field. And there have certainly been those enemies of Truth who have come here with the intent to disrupt, disturb, perturb, interrupt, and sow doubt and discord in the community. And many of us, including myself, have also added our tares by the factors above - immaturity, error, and lack of humor and wisdom.
I know I have added some tares to this field...regrettably. I hope the wheat will crowd out the tares but I trust the Lord will not allow such evil/error to have more than a local and temporal effect of no great significance.
I think an important element of the parable is that the wheat is not threatened by the tares - the wheat will be purged of tares by the harvest of time. But those who intentionally sow such tares are an enemy of truth!! They are they ones in danger!
Or so I understand it.
