Matthew 13 Mark   Luke

  then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has    
  and buys that field."    
Matthew 13  Mark   Luke 
45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like    
  a merchant in search of fine pearls,

PARABLE  of  the  NET
Matthew 13  Mark   Luke 
47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like    
  a net which was thrown into the sea    
  and gathered fish of every kind;    
48 when it was full, men drew it ashore    
  and sat down and sorted the good into vessels    
  but threw away the bad.    
49 So it will be at the close of the age.    
  The angels will come out    
  and separate the evil from the righteous,    
50 and throw them into the furnace of fire;    
  there men will weep and gnash their teeth."
