I’m reading through The Passion Translation this year. I’m only on Mark:). I tend to camp out. Mark 7 Jesus Breaks Religious Traditions I found it glaringly obvious this morning that breaking religious traditions PRECEDED many of the miracles. Jesus told the Pharisees (which, by the way, means “separated ones”) and religious scholars that their man-made rituals, man-made set of rules, and man-made, passed down traditions would NOT honor God.
