the Pharisees or that of Herod" in Lk12:1//Mt
16:6,11//Mk 8:15. The modifiers "of the Pharisees" or
"of Herod" in logic means that "some yeast" is
metaphorically signifying false teaching. Not "all
yeast". Why does Mark so carefully copy the nuance of
"some yeast"? It is because the earlier Gospels in Lk
13:21//Mt 13:33 use the broad term yeast to have a
positive meaning. After Lk had used it first some
readers misunderstood so Mt 16:12 clarifies things as
a first century "yeast for dummies".
This metaphor was employed by Paul

the intended meaning is negative, to a modern idiom "A

idiom by itself is neutral and can swing both ways.
The import as either positive or negative depends on

out in English or other modern language translations
but in Greek they are ludicrous. I thought your claim
is that you are a Text Critic. For example, the
number four (tessares) only appears in Mk 2:3; 13:27
(bis, not for times). Four-thousand (tetrakischilioi)
is not four just as tetradion meaning four squadrons
or tetrakosioi meaning four hundred is not "four" as
you claim written in an unaltered way (tetra-, vs.
tessares-, tessera-, and the late tesseres-). So TC
claims are incredible.
