Mark 10:2 – 11

Once again some Pharisees came to Jesus to test Him:

“Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?” (v2)

Jesus did not give them a direct answer to their question, instead He talked about marriage.

He referred them back to Genesis 1: 27 and 2: 24 in which God instituted marriage as a great unifying blessing.

“Therefore”, Jesus said,

“What God has joined together, let no one separate”.

Although Moses permitted divorce, Jesus called it a concession to the hardness of human hearts (v5)

but “It was not this way from the beginning”
