Bible Dictionary: Definition of Leaven - Define Leaven from Scripture


 
 

Definition of Leaven:

  1. Leaven is a type of prideful sin.


Definition of Leaven - Define Leaven from Old Testament Scripture


Ex 12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

(we have only included one Scripture from the Old Testament Scripture, but there are many.  In the old testament, leaven was a part of feasts that pointed to what God intended to do in the New Testament and intends to do when the Feast of Tabernacles is finally fulfilled.)
