    Greetings. Matt 13:30 is interesting and while translating revelation I looked up where the 2 greek words for "harvest" and "burn" were used.

    The Harvest is shown in Reve 14:15 while the greek word for burn #2618 is used for that Great City.
    I would say the "tares/darnel" are bound up and burned in that City. So anyone like to discust the "Harvest" in Matt 13:30? Peace

    Matt 13:30 "Suffer ye! to be together-growing to of the HARVEST/qerismou <2326> and in the time of the HARVEST/qerismou <2326> I shall be declaring to the Harvesters/Reapers/qerismou <2326>'together-collect the darnel/zizania <2215 and bind ye them! into bundles toward the to burn/kata-kausai <2618> (5658) them. The yet grain together bring into the place of Me'

    Reve 14:15 and another messenger came out out of the Sanctuary crying out in a voice, great, to the one sitting on the cloud: "Send! the sickle of thee and reap! that came the hour to REAP/HARVEST/qerison <2325> (5657), that is dried the HARVEST/qerismoV <2326> of the land.

    Reve 18:8 because of this, in one day shall be arriving the blows of Her, death and mourning and famine. And in fire She shall be being burned/kata-kauqhsetai <2618> (5701), that strong Lord, the God, the One judging Her.

    Greetings.

    Matthew 13:30 is referring figuratively to the great
    white throne judgment, after which all of the unsaved
    will be cast into the lake of fire (Revelation 20:15)
    and all of the saved will live in New Jerusalem with
    God (Revelation 21:2-4).

    Revelation 14:15-16 is referring figuratively to Jesus
    reaping into heaven the souls of the saved who will
    be killed by the Antichrist during the coming
    tribulation for refusing to worship him or his image
    or receive his mark on their hand or forehead
    (Revelation 14:9-16).

    Revelation 18:8 is referring to the destruction at
    the end of the coming tribulation of a figurative
    "Babylon" (Revelation 17:5), which represents all
    of man's corrupt political (Revelation 17:18),
    economic (Revelation 18:11), and religious systems
    (Revelation 18:24).

    Just a note on making connections between single
    Greek words. We can't say that two scriptures must be
    referring to the same thing simply because they both
    use the same Greek word, for the same Greek word can
    refer to many different instances of something. For
    example, Revelation 13:18 refers to the coming
    Antichrist as a "man", anthropos in the Greek. Now we
    can't take the connection between the coming
    Antichrist and the word anthropos and go running off
    looking for other uses of anthropos so we can say they
    all must be referring to the coming Antichrist as
    well, for the word anthropos can refer to any man, no
    matter whether he's good or bad (Matthew 12:35).

    So we have to focus on the context of an individual
    Greek word in a verse to determine what that word is
    actually referring to in that particular verse.
    Otherwise, we'll go off on a lot of wild goose chases,
    wild word chases, that won't end up teaching us
    anything, but will only serve to bring us confusion.
