Coptic Thomas 20
The disciples said to Jesus: "Tell us whom the kingdom of heaven is like!" He said to them: "It is like a mustard seed. <It> is the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on cultivated soil, it produces a large branch (and) becomes shelter for the birds of the sky."© Patterson-Robinson

The disciples said to Jesus: "Tell us whom the kingdom of heaven is like!" He said to them: "It is like a mustard seed. <It> is the smallest of all seeds. But when it falls on cultivated soil, it produces a large branch (and) becomes shelter for the birds of the sky."

Mark 4:30-32

30Again he said, "What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. 32Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air can perch in its shade."

Luke 13:18-19
18Then Jesus asked, "What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? 19It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in its branches."

Matthew 13:31-32

31He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches."
