Scripture: Mark 7:1-8, 14-15
This morning's gospel lesson may appear (on the surface) to be merely a meal-time dispute between Jesus and some overzealous Pharisees. If that were, in fact, the only issue the gospel story raises then it wouldn't have much relevance for Christians. After all, we don't have much concern with Jewish dietary laws. But, Jesus' exchange with these Pharisees has to do with far more than food and meal-time etiquette. As a matter of fact, there is quite a lot of important stuff going on in the conversation Jesus has with these Pharisees.
