– Matthew 15:16-20 –
16 Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them.
17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body?
18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and make them unclean.
19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
20 These are what makes a person unclean; but eating with unwashed hands does not make them unclean.”
The Pharisees and Sadducees were opposed to each other in principles and in conduct; yet they joined against Christ. B
