katapi HOME The Leaven of the Pharisees and of Herod - Mk.8.14-21  Mt.16.5-12       | NEB Books | notes

Mark: 8
14Now they had forgotten to take bread with them; they had no more than one loaf in the boat. 15He began to warn them: 'Beware,' he said, 'be on your guard against the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.' 16They said among themselves, 'It is because we have no bread.' 17Knowing what was in their minds, he asked them, 'Why do you talk about having no bread? Have you no inkling yet? Do you still not understand? Are your minds closed? 18You have eyes: can you not see? You have ears: can you not hear? Have you forgotten? 19When I broke the five loaves among five thousand, how many basketfuls of scraps did you pick up?' 'Twelve', they said. 20'And how many when I broke the seven loaves among four thousand?' 21They answered, 'Seven.' He said, 'Do you still not understand?'

Matthew: 16
5In crossing to the other side the disciples had forgotten to take bread with them. 6So, when Jesus said to them, 'Beware, be on your guard against the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees', 7they began to say among themselves, 'It is because we have brought no bread!' 8Knowing what was in their minds, Jesus said to them: 'Why do you talk about bringing no bread? Where is your faith? 9Do you not understand even yet? Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand, and how many basketfuls you picked up? 10Or the seven loaves for the four thousand, and how many basketfuls you picked up? 11How can you fail to see that I was not speaking about bread? Be on your guard, I said, against the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.' 12Then they understood: they were to be on their guard, not against baker's leaven, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Notes: The most generally known harmonies of the Gospels are based upon the Huck-Lietzmann Synopsis (1936) of the three gospels and Sparks' Synopsis (1964) of four gospels. Many of the passages in these harmonies are too short to display in a useful manner on a web-page.
The katapi New Study Bible Synopsis of the Gospels is based upon the headings displayed in the New Study Bible reference table which in turn follows the headings printed in the United Bible Societies' New Testament in Greek. These sections are more useful for bible study. Columns are arranged so that the first column is your chosen heading from the bible passage list (highlighted). The harmonies that follow across the web-page are then in the normally accepted order.
For Old Testament references quoted by New Testament authors, you should either go back to the passage listing web-page and select the link on the 'version' column; or click on the column heading and search through the chapter for the relevant passage; than select the OT passage from the reference column.
