The Law and the Kingdom (2) - 11.15 am 1/4/12 (Mark 7:1-23)

The Law and the Kingdom (2) - 11.15 am 1/4/12 (Mark 7:1-23)

Rules about the sabbath (Mark 2:23-28) and handwashing (7:1-23) defined Jewish identity, and were followed very strictly by the scribes and Pharisees. But Jesus taught his disciples to look on the heart, not the letter of the Law. In his kingdom, Jesus’ people are identified not by an ethnic criterion or observance of rules, but by the disposition of their hearts and by lives modelled on Jesus himself.
