Parable of the Pearl

Parable of the Pearl

Parable of The Pearl

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls. When he found one very precious pearl, he went away and sold all he had and bought it.”  Matthew 13:45Matthew 13:46

Corresponding to the previous Parable of The Treasure, the merchant, like the man, seek and find what they are looking for.  It is of such great value, they don’t hesitate to go and sell all they have in order to posses it.

The Pearl Is A Metaphor For Wisdom

“Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.” Matthew 7:6

“Do not reprove, (yakach #3198) a scoffer, or he will hate you, Reprove a Wise man and he will love you.” Proverbs 9:8

“Do not speak in the hearing of a fool, For he will despise (maas #3988a) the Wisdom of your words.” Proverbs 23:9

The Incomparable Value of Spiritual Wisdom.

“for Wisdom is more precious than, (Peninim #6443) rubies/pearls, and nothing you desire can compare with her.” Proverbs 8:11

“Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.” Psalm 73:25

More than that, I count all things as loss compared to the surpassing excellence of knowing Christ Jesus, (Y’shua Messiah) my Lord, (YHVH) for whom I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ/Messiah.”  Philippians 3:8

Wisdom, From The Most Ancient Book of Job:

“But where can Wisdom be found? And where is the place of Understanding? Job 28:12

“Man does not know its value, Nor is it found in the land of the living. Job 28:13

“…And the acquisition of Wisdom is above that of pearls, (Peninim #6443).” Job 28:18

 “Where then does Wisdom come from? And where is the place of Understanding? Job 28:20

“And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of YHVH, (He Exists) that is Wisdom; And to depart from evil, (doing bad) is Understanding.'” Job 28:28

The Pearl is Wisdom, Wisdom is Eternal Life, Y’shua is Eternal Life.

All Things Were Created by Wisdom

“YHVH, by Wisdomfounded the earth, By Understanding He established the heavens.” Proverbs 3:19

“O YHVH, how many are Your works!  In Wisdom You have made them all; The earth is full of Your possessions.” Psalm 104:24

All Things Created Through Y’shua (Jesus)

“Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.”  John 1:3

“For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him.”  Colossians 1:16

yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we exist. And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, (Y’shua Messiah) through whom all things came and through whom we exist.” 1 Corinthians 8:6

In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting for God, for whom and through whom all things exist, to make the author/founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.” Hebrews 2:10

And now take a deep breath, and read the next two verses very slowly.  Proverbs 8 and John 1  are referring to both Wisdom and Y’shua in the same way.

“YHVH possessed Me, (Wisdom) at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old.  “From everlasting I was established, From the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth.”  Proverbs 8:22Proverbs 8:23

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1.

We Are Instructed to Diligently Seek and Ask For Wisdom

If any of you lacks Wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” James 1:5

“I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.” Proverbs 2:4Proverbs 8:17

Reverential Fear of YHVH is The Beginning of Wisdom

“The fear of YHVH is the beginning of Wisdom, And Knowledge of the Holy One is Understanding.” Proverbs 9:10

The fear of YHVH is the beginning of Wisdom; A good Understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.” Psalm 111:10

The Holy Scriptures Are Able To Make Us Wise for Salvation

From infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you Wise for Salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.” 2 Timothy 3:15Deuteronomy 4:6

Your Commandments make me Wiser than my enemies, For they are forever mine.” Psalm 119:98

Parable of The Pearl Revealed

In this Parable The Merchant searches and finds the Pearl, representing the Kingdom of Heaven.  We are the Merchant, and all those who seek His Kingdom are promised to find it;

For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:8

Although the religious leaders of Y’shua’s time diligently searched the Scriptures because they knew the Creator’s Wisdom was the Way to eternal Life.  They still couldn’t see or hear spiritually, in order to perceive the Scriptures were speaking about Y’shua as The Spirit of Wisdom/Life.

“You diligently search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about Me,” John 5:39

The Pearl like the Treasure, represents the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven, The Spirit of Wisdom, Y’shua our Creator, they are all One in the same, YHVH, (He Exists) is One.

“Hear, O Israel!  YHVH is our God, YHVH is one!  Deuteronomy 6:4

Nothing in this temporary life compares to eternal Life in His Kingdom.
