SERMON INFO
Jesus is getting closer and closer to Jerusalem. And as he gets closer to his death, he becomes even more “in your face” about the demands of discipleship.

We sometimes think of the Pharisees as the “conservatives” – but in fact, first century Jewish groups don't fit the “conservative/liberal” labels.

Certainly on the question of divorce, the Pharisees were generally permissive. Ben Sira 25:26 says “If she does not accept your control, divorce her and send her away.” Josephus likewise says that he divorced his wife “not liking her behavior.” Rabbi Akiba even said that a man could divorce his wife “if he found another fairer than she.”

There were a few who followed Rabbi Shammai. who restricted divorce to reasons of “unchastity,” but the majority opinion was the school of Hillel who permitted divorce for any cause.

And so the Pharisees ask Jesus to enter into the debate:
