Top  Previous  Next

Then Jesus and the disciples crossed to the other side taking only one loaf.

May 23 Jesus told them, “Watch and beware of the yeast4 of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” They reasoned, “Its because we forgot bread.” But Jesus knowing5 their reasoning, said, “You faithless ones, why argue because you forgot bread? Have you unseeing eyes or unhearing ears? Dont you understand or remember the five loaves feeding five thousand men with twelve baskets left? Or the seven loaves feeding four thousand men with seven baskets left? Why dont you understand I wasnt talking about bread, but warning against the yeast of Pharisees and Sadducees?” Then they knew that he wasnt talking about bread, but about the teaching6 of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
