Yeast was considered to be corrupting and contaminating. It is interesting here to see that it is a woman who yields it. Though it is now invisible, small, and even secretive, Jesus promises a time in which the kingdom of God will subvert the cultural norms of Empire: hierarchy, patriarchy, social injustice.
And this power is yielded by a woman.
How can you quietly subvert empire in your current space?
