LEAVENED - As in leavened bread, where a small amount of yeast will cause the whole loaf to rise, so a small amount of evil or good affects the whole body (Luke 13:20, 21; 1 Cor. 5:7, 8). In contrast to the Old Testament bread, which was unleavened to show the Israelites' separation from the world (Ex. 12:15-20), leavened bread - risen bread - is used in Orthodox Communion to show forth the Resurrection of Christ.
