33 He told them   20 And again he said,   Jesus [said]:

        "To what shall I compare    
  "The kingdom of heaven     the kingdom of God?   "The kingdom of  the Father 
  is like leaven*     It is like leaven*   is like a woman.*
  which a woman* took     which a woman* took  2 She took a little leaven,* 
  and hid     and hid   [hid] it 
  in three measures     in three measures   in 
  of flour,     of flour,   dough,
  till it was all leavened."     till it was all leavened."   and made it
            into large loaves of bread."

*Note: In Matt & Luke this is part of a parable cluster.
In the gospel of Thomas it appears as an independent aphorism.
