Mark 4:15

Context
4:15 These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: Whenever they hear, immediately Satan 1  comes and snatches the word 2  that was sown in them.

1 sn Interestingly, the synoptic parallels each use a different word for Satan here: Matt 13:19 has “the evil one,” while Luke 8:12 has “the devil.” This illustrates the fluidity of the gospel tradition in often using synonyms at the same point of the parallel tradition.

2 sn The word of Jesus has the potential to save if it germinates in a person’s heart, something the devil is very much against.
