Luke 13:20-21

 

Thom 96

33. He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened."

 

And again he said, "To what shall I compare the kingdom of God? 13.21 It is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened." 13.22 He went on his way through towns and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.

Jesus [said]:
96.1  "The kingdom of the Father is like [a] woman.
96.2  She took a little bit of yeast. [She] hid it in dough (and) made it into huge loaves of bread.

 

96.3  Whoever has ears should hear."
