Our Approach to God’s Word

April 28, 2019

Bible Text: Mark 7:1-13 |


Jesus is approached by the Pharisees and scribes and is questioned about why his disciples do not eat with ceremonially washed hands, as is the custom of the Jews. Jesus rebukes them for their hypocrisy, which he defines as abandoning the commands of God for the sake of their tradition. The primary concern of Jesus is their approach to God's Word. This too is a foundational question for us today.
