Matthew 19:1 - 19:9

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this discourse, Steve Gregg examines the issue of divorce and remarriage based on Matthew 19:1-9, where Jesus is questioned by the Pharisees. Gregg explains the different viewpoints of two rabbis concerning the grounds for divorce and highlights Jesus' response, which emphasized God's original intention for marriage as a lifelong union. Gregg emphasizes the concept of "hardness of heart" as the reason for divorce and notes that Jesus allowed for adultery and fornication as valid grounds for divorce but not for remarriage if the first marriage remained intact.
