Two schools of rabbinical thought:
1. Shammai – more theologically conservative - “find something indecent about her”
… Serious sexual sin, just short of adultery.

2. Hillel – more theologically liberal - “find something indecent about her”… Pretty much anything you want that to mean.
Jesus does not enter their debate
Since Deuteronomy 24 did not specifically ban divorce, both schools of thought took that as a sign that God approved of divorce.
- Jesus refutes this by going to Genesis 1
- Jesus declared marriage an act of God
In summary, Jesus is saying a divorce can be permitted in cases of sexual immorality.
When is a divorce permitted (not commanded) for a Christian?
When there is sexual immorality or when an unbelieving spouse leaves the marriage.
Note: If there is abuse involved, separate immediately.
5 Take-a-ways
1. If you are married, enrich your marriage
2. Resist judging those going through it
3. Don’t move quick - even if permitted
4. Don’t take your cues from culture, listen to God
5. Give grace to those affected
