Abstract

The Parable of the Yeast in the Gospel of Luke challenges its hearers’ perspectives on the reign of God, inviting them to perceive the transformation produced by the yeast as vital to God’s ways. This story of bread-making also provides insight into several Lukan pericopes which feature bread, including those where Jesus breaks bread and gives it to others to eat. This study explores how the challenges of the parable inform our reading of these bread stories and highlights the link between Jesus’ table fellowship and justice. It also considers the implications of the Lukan use of bread-making and bread for our Eucharistic celebrations today.
