Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 4:13

_ _ Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables? — Probably this was said not so much in the spirit of rebuke, as to call their attention to the exposition of it which He was about to give, and so train them to the right apprehension of His future parables. As in the parables which we have endeavored to explain in Matthew 13:1-58., we shall take this parable and the Lord’s own exposition of the different parts of it together.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 4:1-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 4:13

Know ye not this parable? — Which is as it were the foundation of all those that I shall speak hereafter; and is so easy to be understood?
