Certain sections of the Jewish people put great store on the importance of rules and conventions as a measure of the goodness of a person. Jesus challenges this view. Even fidelity in religious practice is not enough. ‘This people honours me with their lips, but their heart is far from me’. Jesus seeks followers whose faith is whole-hearted and warm, people whose religion is not primarily in dutiful observance but in their enthusiasm for life and their care for one another.
