Matthew 13:33-35

Jesus tells a story about yeast

33 Jesus told the people another story. He said, ‘The kingdom of heaven is also like this. It is like how yeast works. A woman took the yeast and she mixed it into three large bowls of flour. Then the yeast went through all the flour so that it grew big.’

13:33People put yeast into flour and water to make bread. The yeast grows in the flour and it causes the bread to become bigger.

34 Jesus told the crowds of people all these things. But he only used stories to teach them. 35 So what God's prophet had said long ago now became true:

‘I will use stories when I speak to them.

And I will teach them secret things.

People have never learned these things before, since the world began.’

13:35See Psalm 78:2.
