Church Traditions

"It is amazing to realize, though nevertheless simply a fact, that Jesus’ conflict with Israel’s religious leaders was not over the Mosaic Law. Jesus kept the Old Covenant to the letter, and apart from one rather embarrassing attempt to trip Him up using the occasion of a woman being caught in adultery, those who sought to do battle against Him did so for entirely other reasons. What made them so angry with Jesus wasn’t that He went against anything in the Old Testament Scriptures, because He patently didn’t, but rather that He challenged and went against something called the tradition of the elders." -- Church Traditions by Beresford Job

I'm glad you posted the link to the entire site. I thought the beginning was taking me nowhere and leaving me there...........the whole link confirmed my thinking....I still don't know what tradition has to do with the message.



I walked out during the first intermission.
