Hypocrisy

In today's passage the attacks on Jesus, His men and His ministry are taken to a new level. But Jesus doesn't mince words in His response to His accusers. He exposes their hypocrisy with simplicity and potency.

What has the Lord's opponents up in arms? Have one of the Lord's commandments been broken? Has someone been murdered or caught in adultery?

Join us today for the first nine verses in the fifteenth chapter of Matthew's account of the Gospel.

Matthew 15.1-9 (esv)

15:1 Then Pharisees and scribes came to Jesus from Jerusalem and said, “Why do your disciples break the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat.” He answered them, “And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition? For God commanded, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die.’ But you say, ‘If anyone tells his father or his mother, “What you would have gained from me is given to God,” he need not honor his father.’ So for the sake of your tradition you have made void the word of God. You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you, when he said:

“‘This people honors me with their lips,
but their heart is far from me;

in vain do they worship me,
teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’”
