Show Notes

In today's text we find another encounter of Jesus debating with the Pharisees. This time tradition is the subject of their debate. Jesus appears to hold scripture against tradition, all the while using wisdom to interpret them both. 


In what ways do you value scripture as your guiding principle(s)? Tradition? Wisdom? What happens when one seems to contradict the other? What takes precedent in such occasions? 


Notice what started the debate: a question over dirty hands. How does that influence your understanding of this story?
