Mark 10:2-16

Jesus 1, Pharisees 0

Some Pharisees came, and to test him they asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?"

He answered them, "What did Moses command you?"

They said, "Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of dismissal and to divorce her."

But Jesus said to them, "Because of your hardness of heart he wrote this commandment for you. But from the beginning of creation, `God made them male and female.' `For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." [...]

You Had To Ask ...

Cartoon Cool Stuff

The Pharisees could have been asking about divorce because A) it was a controversial issue and it would divide his support base, B) they really wanted to know, C) they wanted to stir up issues with Herod (remember John the Baptist was beheaded for protesting Herod's marriage to his bother's wife Herodias), D) they wanted him to commit heresy by contradicting mosaic law, E) A,C & D. It would be like asking Jesus about the abortion issue today - how do you think he would respond?
