Another parable spake he upto them ; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and bid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. do. xvi. 18: And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church ; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. do. xxiv. 14: And this Gospel of the kingdom sball be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations ; and tben shall the end come. John, xv. 16: Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain : that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. Compare this with MAT. xxviii. 19, 20: Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost : teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you : and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
