The Parable of the Mustard Seed(A)

18 (B)Then He said, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and put in his garden; and it grew and became a [a]large tree, and the birds of the air nested in its branches.”

The Parable of the Leaven(C)

20 And again He said, “To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? 21 It is like [b]leaven, which a woman took and hid in three (D)measures[c] of meal till it was all leavened.”
