Jesus teaches what really defiles them

Posted by admin on 17 January 2021 in Leviticus, Mark |

In the past two weeks, we studied topics related to ‘uncleanness’ (Our guilt of uncleanness Jesus died for, Peter’s vision and its meaning). Mark 7:1-23 is also related to it. Let us study Mark 7:1-23 over the next few weeks. Today, let us briefly study key points only.

The Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, ‘Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?’ (Mark 7:5)

Jesus teaches that a person is not defiled by unwashed hands or unclean food (See Mark 7:19a) but by evil thoughts (such as lust, hatred, covetousness, arrogance, and folly) that come from within, out of a person's heart (See Mark 7:20-23 for details).
