Mark 2:18-3:6 – As we read these three stories, we are going to see the Pharisees arguing for their methodology, which they equate to personal holiness. But, they have allowed their methodology to obscure the message. If they, and we, will hear what Jesus is saying, we can avoid the message of Jesus and the Gospel becoming slave to our methods.
Jesus is calling us to examine our methods and see if the clear message of the Gospel has become a slave to our methodology. If it has, either corporately or individually, we must repent. Moral actions, maintaining boundaries and keeping order are not the point. Jesus, the Gospel and loving people is the point.
