The parables of the mustard seed and of yeast are short but enigmatic. It seems that parables so mysterious must have a deep underlying meaning, and so they have been the subject of much speculation over the centuries. The earliest New Testament reference to the parable of the mustard seed is found in Mark, at verses 4:30-32, as one of a series of parables ...
