The Parable of the Hidden Treasure Meaning & Key Bible Verses

Lord’s Library editors assembled this short resource which offers a Parable of the Hidden Treasure meaning and summary, with key Scriptures.

In the parable, Jesus says: “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field, the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.”

The treasure hidden in the field represents the Kingdom of Heaven, which is of immeasurable value and worth. The man who discovers this treasure realizes its immense value and, out of great joy, hides it again and goes to sell all his possessions to acquire the field where the treasure is buried.

This parable teaches that the Kingdom of Heaven is of such immeasurable worth that one should be willing to make any sacrifice to obtain it. It emphasizes the incomparable value of a relationship with God and eternal life in His Kingdom.

Just as the man in the parable is willing to part with all his possessions to gain the hidden treasure, followers of Jesus are encouraged to prioritize and pursue the Kingdom of Heaven above all else.
