Matthew 16:1Matthew 16:12


10. Temptation by the Fundamentalists and the Modernists

1 aAnd the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and btesting Him asked Him to show them a 1csign out of heaven.

2 But He answered and said to them, 1When evening falls, you say, There will be fair weather, for the sky is red;

3 And in the morning, It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and gloomy. The 1face of the sky you know how to adiscern, but you cannot 2discern the signs of the times.

4 An aevil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and a sign shall not be given to it, except the 1sign of bJonah. And He cleft them and went away.

5 And when the disciples came to the other side, they had forgotten to take 1bread.

6 And Jesus said to them, Watch and beware of the aleaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

7 But they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we did not take bread.

8 And Jesus, knowing it, said, Why are you reasoning among yourselves, you of alittle faith, because you have no bread?

9 Do you not yet understand nor remember the afive loaves of the five thousand and how many 1handbaskets you took up?

10 Nor the aseven loaves of the four thousand and how many 1baskets you took up?

11 How is it that you do not understand that it was not about bread that I spoke to you? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

12 Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the 1teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
