The Leaven of the Pharisees

Leaven is used in both good and bad sense (cp. Matt. 13: 33; I Cor. 5: 6-8).

The Pharisees were separatists and the Sadducees were a religious/political group.

“6: Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees” (Matt. 16).

2. Love praise of God more (Gal. 1: 10).

3. Respect scriptures (Isa. 66: 2).

4. Be consistent (Jas. 1, I Cor. 15: 58).

5. Correctly view tradition.

6. Again, be sincere (Phili. 1: 10).
