Corban: Mark 7.10-13 VOTD

“For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘Whoever insults his father or mother must be put to death.’ But you say that if anyone tells his father or mother, ‘Whatever help you would have received from me is corban’ (that is, a gift for God), then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or mother. Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like this.”

Mark 7.10-13

Some Jewish traditions didn’t circle the law to protect it, but worked to sidestep it.

What do people say today that cancels out the word of God?
