4/9/17. (Palm Sunday) Week 21 in the Gospel of Mark. The obsessive-compulsive "cleanliness" behaviors of the Pharisees point to a deeper problem, and opportunity. Notice how their question becomes a controversial confrontation with Jesus.
Jesus never picked a fight unnecessarily. Jesus never debated something that wasn’t important, a universal or a profound principle. That’s what we have here. What's the deal with clean hands?
