Text: Mark 7:1-13


Man’s Tradition vs. God’s Word (Mark 7:1-13)

  • The Pharisees twisted Scripture to fit within their sinful desires.
  • The Pharisees nullified the Scriptures by exalting their traditions.
  • Jesus calls us to exalt the Scriptures above man’s tradition.


Quote from John Bunyan: "Run, John, run, the Law commands, but gives us neither feet nor hands. Far better news the Gospel brings; it bids us fly and gives us wings.
