A Morning Cup of Tea : Beware of False Doctrine

Good morning! We are beginning chapter 16 of Matthew today. J is awake and raring to go so today's lesson will be short and sweet.
We are reading verses 1 through 12.
  At this time, the pharisees and the sadducees  are together trying to tempt Jesus. Show us a sign from heaven, they told him.
  Jesus rebuked them, telling them they knew how to read the weather but they could not see what is right there in front of them. He told them that a wicked and adulterous generation will never have a sign except for that of Jonah. (v4). Then he left.
   When they had reached the other side, the disciples realized they had brought no food with them. Jesus told them to beware of the leaven of the pharisees and sadducees. The disciples thought he was telling them this because they hadn't brought any bread. 
   11. How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the pharisees and of the sadducees?
  12. Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the pharisees and sadducees.

Know who you are dealing with. Know for yourself what the bible says so you can steer clear of false doctrine.
