Matthew 15:1-11

Rank hypocrisy

We all hate hypocrisy. So does Jesus! But the hypocrisy against which Jesus speaks in these passages is of the ruling elite. He knows the human heart and sees straight through all their attempts to establish human self-righteousness. This chapter is designed by Matthew to enable us to understand why Jesus' kingdom is populated the way it is; why the most unlikely Canaanite woman is in and the ruling elite from Jerusalem are exposed and out.
