What Are Your Thoughts?

As they were crossing the lake, Jesus warned them, “Watch out! Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and of Herod.” NLT

Then he gave them strict orders: “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” CSB

“And He was giving orders to them, saying, “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.” NASB

No matter the translation the tone remains the same. Jesus warned His disciples and He is warning us. “Watch out”. “Beware.”

Jesus spoke the warning emphatically.

“Take heed,

beware of the leaven of the Pharisees,

and of the leaven of Herod.”

When my Precept Bible Study group came across Mark 8:15, they raised the following question:

“What is the leaven of the Pharisees and Herod? Are they different? The same?”

If we are to be on guard against these things it would be good to know what they are. If we don’t understand them, they may creep into our lives without our noticing.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks for sharing and may you find a place to worship the Lord and encourage one another in love and good works.
