Coptic Mark 4:26-32

[According to Coptic tradition, the Evangelist and Gospel writer Mark was the founder of Egyptian Christianity. The New Testament also puts Egyptians in Jerusalem when the original Christian congregation began, at Pentecost. (Acts 2:8-11) In addition, the eloquent Alexandrian Christian orator and teacher, Apollos, is mentioned at Acts 18:24-28]

And he was saying to them, "So, too, is the Kingdom of God. It is like a man who would sow his seed upon the ground,

"and then he sleeps at night and gets up at day, while the seed sprouts and grows big, although he knows not how.

"The ground sprouts gradually by itself: first grass, then a spike-head, then the full grain in the spike-head.

"And whenever the fruit ripens, immediately he brings the sickle, because the season of the harvest has come."

And he was saying, "To what may we compare the Kingdom of God, or in what way may we set it out as a parable?

"We may set it out like a mustard-seed, which, when planted in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds that are on the ground.
