Matthew 15:2



What was Jesus positon on the tradition of the Elders? Did Jesus believe any doctrine or word of man that was higher in Jesus’ mind than the word of God?


Matthew 15:2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.


And now, admonition.

In Matthew Chapter 15 and in verse two the Pharisees asked this question, why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders for they do not wash their hands when they eat bread? This is one of those passages where we identify very clearly in the scripture that Jesus perspective about the tradition of the elders was very different than his perspective about the law of God. Because Jesus will correct their understanding and position on the tradition of the elders. They would hold and value the tradition of the elders, but they would ignore the commands of God. There is no tradition. There is no word. There is no doctrine of men that should ever stand higher in our minds and in our lives than the word of God. We need to be careful to put God’s word where it belongs first in our lives.
