AVOID BAD TEACHINGS To understand what is in the bible, it is good to refer to other scriptures in the bible. Jesus warned His apprentices "BE CAREFUL OF THE YEAST OF THE PHARISEES. THEY ARE HYPOCRITES" [Lk 12:1 IC]. At times different translations are helpful, as older translations use an old English term "LEAVEN" although the word "YEAST" is better understood today. Of the three records of the oral traditions of Jesus words about leaven or yeast, Luke also records "THEY ARE HYPOCRITES". How are they hypocrites?  In Matthew is included the explanation "Then they understood that He was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees" [Mt 16:12 NI]. This warning can be about religious leaders today. How can we be sure we are not following bad teachings? If we only follow the teachings of Jesus, we can be sure we are following the truth.
