  • Luke 13:18-21 King James Version
    • Then said He, "Unto what is the Kingdom of God like? And whereunto shall I resemble it?
      • "It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it."
      And again He said, "Whereunto shall I liken the Kingdom of God?
      • "It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened."


Thou through Thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for Thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts.
Psalms 119:98‭-‬100 King James Version

Rev. Dr. Finis Jennings Dake wrote: [It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened] The 26th parable in Luke (Lk. 13:21), illustrating corruption in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Notes For Verse Matthew 13:33
a [leaven] Leaven is figurative of sin (1Cor. 5:6-8; Gal. 5:9); false doctrines (Mt. 16:6-12; Mk. 8:15-21); and hypocrisy (Lk. 12:1). A woman used figuratively in an evil sense represents wickedness, fallacy, uncleanness, and unfaithfulness (Lam. 1:17), harlotry (Ezek. 16:15,22,26,28-59; 23:1-49; 36:17; Hos. 1:2; 2:2-17; 3:1; Rev. 17), wickedness (Zech. 5:5-11; Rev. 17:5), and false religion (Rev. 17). When used in a good sense women represent Israel (Gen. 37:9-10 with Rev. 12; Ezek. 16), the two covenants (Gal. 4:21-31), and righteousness and purity (2Cor. 11:2; Rev. 19:7-8). Meal symbolizes the Word of God (Mt. 4:4; Jn. 6:47-63).

This illustrates how the kingdom of heaven teachings and the program of God in this age would become corrupted by false doctrines and unscriptural programs until the whole is corrupted (Lk. 18:8; 1Tim. 4:1-8; 2Tim. 3:5; 4:3-4; 2Pet. 3:3-4).

b [hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened] All false teachings, religious programs, and professed Christian lives seek to hide behind the Word of God.

c [measures] Greek: saton (GSN-<G4568>), about 1 1/2Pecks. Three measures was a heaping bushel, the common quantity used by one baking for a large household (Gen. 18:6).

He got that right, even the many translations and paraphrases of the bible show this to be true.
If a person will read and study only the KJV for a few years it becomes obvious that opinions and outside teachings
have leavened the word of God.

For ALL the promises of God in Him are YES, and in Him AMEN, unto the glory of God by us.

Honestly, I would have never had come to the conclusion that Dake gives as to the meaning of this passage. His insight into the meaning is beyond me, on this passage.

I would have thought that the three measures of meal symbolized the world and that the leaven symbolized the Kingdom spreading throughout the world.
