Jesus Warns His Disciples Against
Interwoven Gospels

Now when the disciples departed to the other side, they forgot to take bread; and except one loaf, they had none with them in the boat. And Jesus charged them, saying, "Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees, and the leaven of Herod." And they reasoned with one another, saying, "It is because we have no bread." Then Jesus, perceiving it, said to them, "Why reason ye among yourselves, O ye of little faith, because ye have no bread? Do ye not yet consider nor understand? Have ye your heart hardened? Having eyes, do ye not see? And having ears, do ye not hear? And do ye not remember? When I broke the five loaves to the five thou- sand, how many baskets full of pieces did ye take up?" They say to Him, "Twelve." "And when the seven to the four thousand, how many baskets full of pieces did ye take up?" And they said, "Seven." And He said to them, "How is it that ye do not perceive that I did not speak to you about bread, but, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees? Do ye not yet understand?" Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

And they come to Bethsaida. And they bring to Him a blind man and beseech Him to touch him. And taking hold of the hand of the blind man, He led him forth out of the village. And spitting into his eyes and laying His hands upon him, He asked him, "Seest thou anything?" And looking up, he said, "I see men; but I see them as trees walking." Then Jesus laid His hands again upon his eyes; and he looked steadily, and was restored and saw all things clearly. And He sent him away to his house, saying, "Do not even go into the village."
