In Mark 7:1-3 NKJV: “Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders.” Some religious practices “reject the commandment of God” to keep their tradition, as Jesus said in Mark 7:9. Christians remember Jesus’ death every first day of the week in the Lord’s Supper, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes” (1 Corinthians 11:26; Acts 20:7 NKJV). The churches of Christ do not wait for a man-made yearly tradition!
