Luke 12:1-3

Beware of the Leaven of the Pharisees

12 In the meantime, when so many thousands of the people had gathered together that they were trampling one another, he began to say to his disciples first, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops.

Sermon Notes

Beware of no man more than of yourself; we carry our worst enemies within us.

-Charles Spurgeon

  • Who is Jesus’ audience? (Luke 12:1)
  • Whose leaven did Jesus warn his disciples against? (Luke 12:1)
  • What does it mean to beware of the “yeast of the Pharisees”? (Luke 12:1)
  • What happens to things that are hid or covered according to Jesus? (Luke 12:2)  What does this mean for us?
  • Where will the words of the disciples spoken in darkness be heard? (Luke 12:3)
  • From where will the words of the disciples spoken in closets be proclaimed according to Jesus? (Luke 12:3)  Why is this important?
