What does it mean to be the leaven of the Kingdom of God?
Well, in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us that the Kingdom of Heaven is like leaven, but what is leaven? Leaven or yeast is what was used by bakers to make the bread rise and expand and grow; just like the Kingdom of Heaven. Like the previous parables, the Parable of the Leaven focuses on the Kingdom of Heaven from the Holy Spirit as said in Matthew 13:33. Although the shortest of the previous four parables, the Parable of the Leaven will give us insight into how God’s kingdom is meant to grow.
“33. Another parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”
