what connects the Revelation's Jesus and the Parable of Sower

He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.

(Revelation 19:13)

So if who is sown is the Word, then Jesus is not the Sower but the sown Word. In other terms, his disiepta membra, after the his crucifixion by archons-demons, are sown to give origin to the world, before the creation.

Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? The farmer sows the word.

(Mark 4:13-14)

This is the reason why pseudo-Hyppolitus refers that according to some heretic Christians, the Parable of Sower is allegory of the creation.

Then Mark 4:11-12 becomes more clear:

He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables 12 so that,
“‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving,
and ever hearing but never understanding;
otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’ ”

The Word is the sinister side of Jesus's nature.

Wisdom 18:15-16
Your all-powerful word from heaven’s royal throne
leapt into the doomed land,

a fierce warrior bearing the sharp sword of your inexorable decree,
And alighted, and filled every place with death,
and touched heaven, while standing upon the earth.

So, by ignoring what is really the Word, who has not heard it is doomed from the beginning of the creation (his name being not found in the Book of Live) and therefore he has not to turn back.

And he is doomed from the beginning of the creation since the Word was sown before the creation of the world: Jesus was crucified before any age.

But then who is the Sower? The Sower may be who decreed the crucifixion of the Son: the supreme God for the Jewish-Christians, the demiurge for the Gnostics.
Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
