Does Jesus have the authority to challenge the Scriptures?
A Christian cannot cite Moses to silence Jesus. Jesus is the one who fulfills the Law and the Prophets.
Are we reading the Bible like Jesus or like a Pharisee?
The priority of Jesus was not on defending a text. It was on defending people.
The Pharisees are representative of the way of unquestioning obedience.
Jesus is representative of the way of faithful questioning.
The Pharisees' dedication to getting the law/Bible right blinded them to the needs of their neighbors.
Jesus teaches that if you focus on the needs of your neighbors, you can't help but get the law/Bible right.
