Jesus Teaches the Multitude on the Shore While He Sits in a Boat
“On that day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And there were gathered unto him great multitudes, so that he entered into a boat, and sat; and all the multitude stood on the beach. And he spake to them many things in parables...” Matthew 13:1-3 ASV
Illustration of Jesus sitting in the stern of a small fishing boat, reaching out to the people on shore and teaching in parables. A man sits in the bow on a fishing net. Several people stand on shore. One woman holds a baby and has a small child standing beside her. Another woman is sitting on the shore. There are mountains in the background and a single tree in the center of the image.
