Facing Jesus: Living Word, Broken Tradition

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, February 22, 2015

Series: Facing Jesus

Text:Mark 7:1-13


Jesus’ principal opponents in all the gospels including Mark are not the Roman governors, unbelievers or even the evil spirits.  Jesus’ main opponents are the religious leaders.  This has to seem strange to put it mildly.  Jesus is not only the Son of God.  He is also the Son of Abraham, the Son of David, the fulfillment of Israel’s law and indeed its whole history.  Why then would these religious leaders, the Pharisees, chief priests and the scribes continually reject him and criticize him?  We have here the ultimate difference between religion which is human centered and revelation which is God centered.  Not only are these two not the same, many times they are incompatible.  A key figure in modern American history, the Rev.
