Scriptural Meditation- Matthew 19:4

He replied, “Haven’t you read that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female…”


I love Messiah’s sharpness so much! I’m really tickled by this trap laid for him because it is so deceptive. The Pharisees were experts in Torah, so they knew the true answer to this question. Yeshua is a nobody from a certain point of view. As far as we know, his family was poor and he did not attend any special schooling like the Pharisees, Saduccees other sects of whom I am ignorant. The Torah is full of laws that are designed to mitigate negative human behavior, not mandate it. The Torah never commands a man divorce his wife, in fact there are some trespasses that make it so that a man is never allowed to divorce her and must always care for her until the day he dies. I picked the line “haven’t you read?” Because it is easy to take scripture out of context and twist it to your ruin.
