Matthew 16:8-12. Proper Understanding 23 Jun 2023

Mat 16:8 Jesus knew it, and he said,
'You have so little faith,
why are you talking among yourselves about having no bread?
9 Do you still not understand?
Do you not remember the five loaves for the five thousand
and the number of baskets you collected?
10 Or the seven loaves for the four thousand
and the number of baskets you collected?
11 How could you fail to understand that I was not talking about bread?
What I said was:
Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.'
12 Then they understood
that he was telling them to be on their guard,
not against yeast for making bread,
but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

On your guard against, and the teaching of ... the Pharisees and Sadducees. They had power and Israel was little by little poisoned by their legalism.

Prayer

Jesus, I ask for simplification and purification of the rules of the Catholic church.
