May 16 Jesus replied, “Isaiah correctly prophesied about you hypocrites, This people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. In vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrine the commands of men.

Jesus added, “You leave Gods commandments to keep your traditions. Moses said, Honor your father and mother, he who slanders father or mother let him die. But you acquit anyone who says to his father or mother, Whatever help you might have received from me is 'Corban,' that is, given to God. That way you no longer let him help his parents. Thus you nullify Gods word with your tradition. You do many other similar things.”
