Lev 14 talks about the mold and how it spreads on the outside and needs to be washed off diligently. In the New Testament Jesus talks about the mold on the inside, yeast!
Jesus said it's not what's on the outside that makes a person unclean but on the inside. Mark 7:14-16
Matthew 16:11-13 How is it you don't understand that I was not talking to you about bread? But be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees." Then they understood that he was not telling them to guard against the yeast used in bread, but against the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
1 Corinthians 5:6-8 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth.
Sincerity and Truth the word combo for today.
