Last part: The story about the seeds

Mark chapter 4

People are not ready to learn

Verses 10-12

Jesus explained all these stories to his *disciples. He wanted them to know how God rules his people. Jesus’ *disciples were ready to learn.

But many people in the crowds were not ready to learn. Some people were against Jesus. And some people only wanted Jesus to help them. They did not want to learn anything. They did not want to obey God. They would not think about Jesus’ words.

Jesus said that Isaiah 6:9-10 described these people well. They listened to everything. But they learned nothing. They would never obey God. And God would not save them.
