Is sin the only definition of leaven?
Matthew 13:33 “He spoke another parable to them, “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three pecks of flour until it was all leavened.”
- Is heaven sin?
- Was Yahshua saying that heaven is sin?
- Leaven must be symbolically defined as something other than sin also.
Matthew 16:6 “And Yahshua said to them, “Watch out and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
- Yahshua was always teaching against the doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
- He was against their teachings, their schools, and doctrines - the mainstream seminaries
- Their doctrine was so far off that they were accused as being lawless and negating the
- Word of Yah by misunderstanding Moses.
- Anything that is against Moses, we are to purge that from our theological framework.
Matthew 16:12 “Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
Matthew 23:28 “So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”
- Their teachings negated Moses and thus were considered lawlessness. We are to beware of such teaching
Mark 7:8-13 Mar 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of Elohim, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mar 7:12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; Mar 7:13 Making the word of Elohim of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
Mat 23:1-5 Then spake Yahshua to the multitude, and to his disciples, Mat 23:2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: Mat 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. Mat 23:4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. Mat 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
