Seeing a bowl of uncooked dough could also be a warning to watch out for the leaven. Jesus says it well in this Scripture: • Matthew 16:6 Then Jesus said to them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. • In this case, leaven is seen as legalism, works and false teaching. Just one part of leavens, leavens the whole dough. • See also: Bake, Bread
