The Gospel
of Mark
Chapter 7
1 The Pharisees and religious leaders who had come down from Jerusalem to meet Jesus 2 noticed that some of his disciples ate with “unclean” (meaning unwashed) hands. 3 (The Pharisees and all Jews don’t eat until they wash their hands, following the tradition of their ancestors. 4 In the same way, they don’t eat when they return from the market until they have had a wash. They observe many other rituals, like the washing of cups, pots, and pans). 5 So the Pharisees and religious leaders asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples follow the tradition of our ancestors? They eat food with unclean hands.”

The Gospel of Mark, Chapter 7
Portrait of Christ,Mark 7:14-21
14 Jesus called the crowd to him again and told them, “Please, everyone listen to me and understand. It’s not what’s on the outside and goes into you that makes you unclean. It’s what comes out that makes you unclean.” Then Jesus went inside to escape the crowd, and his disciples asked him about his illustration. “Don’t you understand it either?” he asked them. “Don’t you see that what you eat doesn’t make you unclean? It doesn’t go into your mind, but into your stomach, and then passes out of the body. So all foods are ceremonially “clean.” “It’s what comes out of you that makes you unclean. 21 It’s from the inside, from people’s minds, that evil thoughts come: sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, slander, pride, thoughtlessness—all these evils come from inside and defile people.”
