Legalism is nothing new; for it has existed throughout human history. People have tried to placate God through sacrifice, denial, giving money, keeping a code, and so forth, to earn his favor. Such was the case with the religious leaders in Jesus’ day. Jesus objected to their legalism and offered freedom from man-made rules, codes, and regulations so that we can enjoy our relationship with him. In this morning’s teaching, we step into Jesus’ world and gain insights into the legalism that existed in his day and still exists today.
