Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 13:47

_ _ Matthew 13:47-50. The Good and Bad Fish.

_ _ The object of this brief parable is the same as that of the Tares and Wheat. But as its details are fewer, so its teaching is less rich and varied.

_ _ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind — The word here rendered “net” signifies a large drag-net, which draws everything after it, suffering nothing to escape, as distinguished from a casting-net (Mark 1:16, Mark 1:18). The far-reaching efficacy of the Gospel is thus denoted. This Gospel net “gathered of every kind,” meaning every variety of character.
