After the Parable of the Soils, the Gospel of Mark records the Parable of the Lamp.  On the surface, what Jesus says here is self-evident: “Is a lamp brought to be put under a basket or under a bed?  Is it not to be set on a lampstand?” (v. 21).  This simply means that no one lights a lamp and then shoves it under his bed or puts it under a basket because that would defeat the purpose of having a lamp.  Instead, a lamp is lit to shine a light, and to be most effective it is elevated on a stand it so that the light can fill the room.
