Bible: Matt 13:33-35

The Parable of the Yeast

13:33 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with 1  three measures 2  of flour until all the dough had risen.” 3 

The Purpose of Parables

13:34 Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the crowds; he did not speak to them without a parable. 13:35 This fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet: 4 

I will open my mouth in parables,

I will announce what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.” 5
