La parábola de la lámpara

Authored by Msgr. Paul J. Watson in Issue #30.2 of The Sower

En María, vemos cómo la Parábola de la Lámpara alcanza su pleno cumplimiento.

La Parábola de la Lámpara se encuentra en los Evangelios de Mateo, Marcos y Lucas (Mt 5: 14-16, Mc 4:21-23, y Lc 8:16-18, 11:33-36). ¡Se le sugiere al lector que primero lea los textos bíblicos antes de seguir con este artículo!

Esta parábola se relaciona con la enseñanza inicial de Jesús y el llamado a los discípulos de transmitir esa enseñanza a los demás: Marcos y Lucas sitúan la Parábola inmediatamente después de la Parábola del Sembrador, mientras que Mateo la ubica dentro del Sermón del Monte en lugar del discurso sobre las parábolas.

Al colocar a la Parábola de la Lámpara tras la Parábola del Sembrador, Marcos y Lucas la interpretan claramente como la consecuencia de escuchar la palabra de Dios de manera fructífera. Si la palabra de Dios ha sido recibida de modo que da frutos – sesenta, ochenta, o hasta cien veces más - entonces es para que el discípulo pueda ser luz para los demás. Es extraordinario pensar que cuando alguien ha recibido la luz de la Revelación, y que ha escuchado y acogido a la palabra de Dios en su vida, entonces él o ella se convierte en una especie de fuente secundaria de luz, de revelación.
