'" Wherever Jesus went it seems, the
Pharisees' were along- to see what he
did and, if possible, to find fault On
this occasion; J"us was teaching and
preaching in Capernaum and a group
of Pharisees and Scribes were sent
from Jerusalem v to spy upon Jesus,
to discredit him with the people and
to 1 And grounds for legal '.action
against him. Naturally, they were
anxious to discover something upon
which to base their claims. .
Therefore, noticing that "some of
his disciples ate their bread with de
filed, that Is, unwashen, hands," they
went Immediately - to Jesus to ask
him why it was that he had not re
ouired that his disciples regard the
traditions of the elders. .: Now these
traditions first came into feeing as
interpretations of the Mosaic law and
were applications of the law to meet
local circumstances. Then, - the tra
ditlons . became interpretations of
traditions, and, traditions were the
interpretations of interpretations of
traditions, until finally there stood
between the people of God and the
law of God such a mass of traditions
that the law of God was lost sight of
and practically forgotten.
Such was the case in this instance.
While no one would condemn the
practice of personal cleanliness and
the necessity of washing one a hands
before eating, and neither did Jesus
nor his disciples, the religious leaders
had made a religious ceremonial out
of the mere practice, making the
habit of cleanliness a burden because
of certain rituals - which had to be
performed. Those who failed to car
ry out the prescribed rites were de
clared ceremonially unclean and unfit
to associate with. , - -.
In answer to their accusations of
transgressing the traditions of men,
Jesus accuses the Pharisees of trans
gressing, or putting at naught - the
word of 3od. , Quoting to them
Isaiah 29:13, Jesus tells them what
he thinks of them, thus: "This people
honoreth me with their lips, but their
heart is far from me. But in vain
do they worship me, teaching aa their
doctrines the precepts (traditions) of
men." It took courage for Jesus to
thus denounce tte religious leaders
of his day, and yet everything , he
said was true. He went further, de
claring, -"Ye leave the commandment
of God and hold fast to the tradition
of men." .
Going into fiirther detail with
them, Jesus touches a sore spot. He
shows them just how hollow ana
meaningless was their Pharisaical
piety. Taking as an example the
Fifth Commandment, which was one
upon which the Pharisees laid much
emphasis the honor due parents
Jesus showed them how they had
made the law of God of no effect by
establishing a man-made rule where
by man could "get by" his obli
gation to his parents in a way which
would ease his own conscience. Moses
said, "Honor . thy father and thy
mother," but "ye say, If a man shall
say to his father, or mother, "That
wherewith thou mightest have been
profited by me is Corban, that is to
say, Given to God: ye no longer suf
fer him to do aught for his father
and his mother." In other words, if
a man, with parents in need, desired
not to help his parents, he could de
clare that the' house which he owned
In which his parents might live, or
that money with which he might pro
vide the necessities of life for his
parents, were Corban, that is dedi
cated to God, the proceeds of which
were to be used for God, then that
person would be relieved of his obli
gation to his parents and could not
be forced to provide for them.
Thus was1: God's word, commanding

such instances is brought out by the
statement of Jesus, "And many sucn
like things ye do."
Before condemning the Scribes and
Pharisees of Jesus' day too strongly,
let us question ourselves closely to
see if we are not somewhat deserving
of the same condemnation from the
Master. Have traditions of men
come between us and the Word of
God? Have we been willing to take
another's interpretation of God'f
Word, or do we read and study the
Bible and attempt to get its truths
for ourfown earst Let us remem
ber that the only" worship that is
really acceptable to God is the wor
ship of the heart and that "Man look
eth on the outward appearance, but
God looketh on the heart."
