“What does it mean that Heaven is like a mustard seed or a pinch of yeast?
Today we continue our series on Seeing Beyond the Parables with Jesus’ next parable that describes Heaven. How can heaven be a blissful kingdom that is only accessible when we die, if the point of these parables is to reveal that Heaven is here and now?
Join me now as these parables illuminate that Heaven has come, is here now, but isn’t fully baked yet. We’ll discover that Heaven is about participation, rather than a destination.
Jesus told his disciples to “Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees and the Leaven of Herod.” His disciples had no clue what he was talking about, and likewise many of us don’t either. In this podcast and post I will show you that the pharisee is not just an historical Jewish figure, nor is a pharisee limited to religious people. Just as yeast gives rise to bread, we are warned by Jesus to watch out for that which gives rise to Church and State. There is a watershed disposition of the mind that creates these superpowers that oppress and imprison. I will show it to you and reveal a simple hack that will enable us to work and live within the system, without being controlled or defined by them.
