Bread baked without using leaven, a substance such as yeast which produces fermentation in dough. Unleavened bread was often served to guests (Genesis 19:3 ; Judges 6:19 ; 1 Samuel 28:24 ). The eating of unleavened bread took on special significance through the Feast of Unleavened Bread celebrated in connection with Passover (Exodus 12:8 ,Exodus 12:8,12:15 ,Exodus 12:15,12:20 ; Exodus 13:3 ,Exodus 13:3,13:6-7 ). See Exodus ; Festivals ; Passover .
