On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/21/21), Hank continues teaching through chapter 13 of Matthew’s Gospel. Following the parable of the Mustard Seed, Jesus told His listeners yet another parable—a parable of immense profundity encapsulated in a single sentence: “The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds of flour until it worked all through the dough” (Matthew 13:33 NIV). Here Jesus makes plain that the power of His rule may be hidden, but nonetheless produces enormous effects. Though the power of the yeast may not be apparent to the naked eye, it produces a mysterious reality. A reality that will impact the very structure of the Roman Empire and ultimately the world. Jesus is the embodiment of the kingdom of heaven. It did not arrive as longed for by the Jews, rather it arrived secretly as leaven, inconspicuously like a mustard seed, or hidden like treasure in a field. It is the pearl of great price. To find it is to find Christ and the Church. All other philosophies, religions, and worldviews are vain. Only Christ and His Church ultimately lead us back to the garden—back to the very fellowship with God that we were created to enjoy.
