In this passage, a group of religious leaders comes to Jesus to ask him his opinion on divorce. If I'm totally honest, this is a scripture that has made me deeply uncomfortable for a long time. In most of the stories of Jesus, he usually takes what the religious leaders of the time saw as the Law, and flips it on its head. But this time, he seems to just double down, going even further than the Law suggests. His answer, at least at first glance, seems somewhat out of character. Join me this Sunday as we take a closer look at this teaching, and grasp at the heart of Jesus' message.
