Clean Up on the Inside

One of the Pharisees invited Jesus to his home for a meal. He noticed that Jesus did not wash before the meal and expressed his surprise.

Pharisee: Teacher – why did you not undertake the ceremonial washing as decreed by the law?
Jesus: You see this cup? You Pharisees wash the outside – but look – it’s the inside that is stained and needs a clean. Ceremonial washing will not solve anything. It’s inside that matters.

Pharisee: Are you saying that age-old teaching counts for nothing?
Jesus: I’m saying that you have distorted the original truth laid down. You are like whitewashed graves – smart and bright on the outside – but everything inside is dead and rotting.
