A group of Pharisees and some teachers of religion from Jerusalem came to Jesus. They asked him,
"Why do you disciples violated the customs of our ancestors? Time will eat, they do not wash their hands in advance according to the rules!"
Jesus replied, "And why do you also disobey God, just because wants to follow the traditions your ancestors?
For God said, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and 'Anyone vilify the father or mother should be dead. "
But you teach: if anyone says to his parents, 'What should I give to my father and mother, was I dedicate to God,'
that person is no longer required to honor their parents. So because the customs your ancestors, you underestimate the word of God.
You hypocrites! Exactly right what Isaiah predicted about you, namely,
'Here's the word of God: That people worship only with words, but their hearts are far from Me.
Useless they worship Me, because they teach human rules as though it was my rule.
