Luke 13:20 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 13:20

And again he said
That is, Jesus, as the Syriac and Persic versions express it; besides the parable of the grain of mustard seed, that also of the leaven hid in three measures of meal:

whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God;
either the Gospel of the kingdom, and the mysteries of it; or the church, which is Christ's kingdom; or the grace of God in the heart, which makes meet for the kingdom of glory; the first seems rather to be intended; (See Gill on Matthew 13:33).

Luke 13:20 In-Context

18 He said therefore, "What is the kingdom of God like, and what can I compare it to?
19 It's like a mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the sky nested in its branches."
20 Again He said, "What can I compare the kingdom of God to?
21 It's like yeast that a woman took and mixed into 50 pounds of flour until it spread through the entire mixture."
22 He went through one town and village after another, teaching and making His way to Jerusalem.
