People's Bible Notes for Matthew 16:7


Mt 16:7-11 [It is] because we have taken no bread. The thoughts of the disciples were so fixed upon their failure to supply bread that they thought the remark about leaven contained a rebuke. The Lord reminds them of his creative power, and how it has been put forth.
