Letters From A Pastor to His People - September 2, 2018
The Law of Moses from the Old Testament, as I've mentioned before, consisted of over 600 lawsThose who practiced every law down to the last detail were few.They were the urban elite.Some of the laws dealt with ritual washing.Farmers in the countryside simply could not do this.Water was too scarce and precious.Some of the laws dealt with coming in contact with dead objects.Again, this was unavoidable for the working class. Fishermen, for example, often pulled out dead fish from their nets.And there are many other cases of the futility of the law.
Lest the majority of people be in constant legal violation, the Hebrews created what they called "the Little Tradition." This was an adaptation of the laws of Moses.The essence of the important laws were observed.
But not for the Pharisees.They followed everything, and judged those who did not.And Jesus calls them out for it."Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites..."(Mk 7:6).
