Today there are four chapters to read.
Mark 4 starts out with the parable of the sower, and Jesus provides the explanation of it, the key to the parables. Then the parable of the lamp on a stand, not under a bushel, then the parable of the seed in the ground, or the faith of a mustard seed, all parables relating to the Kingdom of God. Finally Jesus calms the storm and chastises the disciples for their lack of faith.
Numbers 23 tells of Balaam’s first oracle, his second oracle, and the beginning of his third oracle.
Numbers 24 continues with Balaam’s third oracle, his fourth, and his final oracle.
Numbers 25 finally tells how Israel went astray in Moab.
