Bible: Matthew 16:6-12

16:6 Watch out,” Jesus said to them, “beware of the yeast of the Pharisees 1  and Sadducees.” 2  16:7 So 3  they began to discuss this among themselves, saying, “It is because we brought no bread.” 16:8 When Jesus learned of this, 4  he said, “You who have such little faith! 5  Why are you arguing 6  among yourselves about having no bread? 16:9 Do you still not understand? Don’t you remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up? 16:10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand and how many baskets you took up? 16:11 How could you not understand that I was not speaking to you about bread? But beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees! 16:12 Then they understood that he had not told them to be on guard against the yeast in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
