Three measures

Interesting thought that came to me this weekend –

Recently we were discussing how “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.”

And how that leaven can not be sin in this instance – because it is representing the kingdom of heaven here….so, what gives?

I got to thinking that maybe the three measures that were all leavened is the three main religions of the world. 

while I was poking around I came across a woman that took three measures of flour, and made cakes – and then received a blessing to have a son in her old age and she would be the mother of many nations…Gen 18…

That is an interesting idea. Christians and Muslims make up over 50% of the religious folks in the world – the Jewish people are only….0.4% or something silly like that, but without the Jewish people, the others would never have gotten anywhere…My point is The seed of Abraham is all over the place. 

Thoughts?

    When Messiah was in the grave, He was ‘unleavened’ – without life. Might that also be a possibility? That they’re talking about three aspects of life?

    I just don’t know – I don’t think it was about Messiah being unleavened – He compares that to Jonah.
    The two things I am trying to figure out are “what is leavening?” and what is the “Kingdom of Heaven”?
    I suppose also we could wonder who is the woman? and what are the three batches of flour that have leavening worked all throughout them?
    At first I thought – – well all three Major groups have flawed doctrine in someway and that fits with the Pharisees and Sadducees thing. Maybe the woman is evil and spreading a different type of lie through out all the groups. A lie that makes them feel puffed up with knowledge?
    But how is that like the Kingdom of heaven? Or maybe it is because the Kingdom is actually “hidden” in each of the three groups and eventually they will all seem the same? I wish I knew.
