Yeast of the Pharisees sermon video. Jesus said the yeast of the Pharisees is hypocrisy. This is worse than their being hypocrites. The warning is beware their stuff doesn’t get inside you – in your head or in your heart. Once in it’s like yeast (leaven) in bread. It permeates, infuses, and saturates. It’s necessary to realize we are all being yeasted by someone or someones. I’m attempting to yeast you at this very moment. It’s how we learn and change. All yeasting is not bad. Jesus’ warning to all is Be on guard against the yeast of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy.

Towns and villages were emptying as towns only consisted of maybe a hundred people. No one drew people like Jesus. This is still true today two-thousand years later. Jesus was the biggest event in all of Israel. With no microphones or amplifiers, people had to get close to hear and see and were trampling on one another. It was a mob scene.
