Two controversies reveal what was wrong with the Pharisees, and what might be wrong with us. Covering Mark 2:23-3:6
Jesus corrects the Pharisees for adding their traditions to God’s commands, as well as for missing out on the heart of God’s commands. We’ll look at how Jesus’ claim that “the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath” is both a claim to deity and a claim to have the right to explain the meaning of the Old Testament law. There’s also an apologetics moment today where we deal with a supposed Bible contradiction where some say Jesus was simply wrong about the Old Testament.
Just a quick note related to the Sabbath: I do not think Christians are called to be under the Law, and we do not have the same obligation to observe the Sabbath that they did at the time of the events of Mark chapter 2.
I also have a series dealing with the Hebrew Roots Movement (who teach that we should all obey the Law of Moses today).
