4. The Inward Corruption
of the Outward Appearance of the Kingdom
33 aAnother parable He spoke to them: The kingdom of the heavens is like 1bleaven, which a 2cwoman took and hid in dthree measures of 3meal until the whole was leavened.
34 All these things Jesus spoke in aparables to the crowds, and apart from a parable He spoke nothing to them,
35 So that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying, a"I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things bhidden 1cfrom the foundation of the world.''
