Matthew 15:1 - 15:9

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this session, Steve Gregg delves into the conflict between Jesus and the religious leaders of his time, focusing on the issue of washing hands. While the religious leaders wanted to ensure that people did not break the law, they also imposed strict traditions such as washing off past defilement. However, Jesus criticized the elders for focusing on tradition over God's commandments. Gregg notes that this conflict highlights the inherent authority of human tradition versus divine commandments. He also briefly touches on other biblical requirements, such as giving 10% of one's increase to the Lord and dedicating one's life to God.
