If you’ve ever thought of Jesus as gentle, meek, and mild, you may be shocked at how he throws it down with a bunch of religious people and exposes their true values. In today’s teaching, Jesus challenges what these religious elites claim they value and calls out how their meticulous rule-following is a cover-up for their moral bankruptcy. If you thought following Jesus is mostly about following rules, colouring inside the lines, and obedience, stay tuned as Pastor Robyn Elliott teaches on a text that actually says, following the rules is too easy and misses the point.
