John 12:24

24 Truly, truly, I say to you, aUnless the grain of wheat 1falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone; but if it dies, it bears 2bmuch fruit.

241 At this point, according to the worldly view, Jesus was in His golden time. A great crowd of the Jews esteemed Him highly and welcomed Him warmly because of the resurrection of Lazarus (vv. 12-19), and even the Greeks were seeking after Him (vv. 20-22). But He preferred to fall as a grain of wheat into the ground and die that He might produce many grains for the church.
