      Teachings about Divorce
    • 1 And He left there and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan, and crowds gathered to Him again; and again, as His custom was, He taught them.
      2 And Pharisees came up and in order to test Him asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”
      3 He answered them, “What did Moses command you?”
      4 They said, “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to put her away.”
      5 But Jesus said to them, “For
      your hardness of heart he wrote you this commandment.
      6 But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’
      7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife,
      8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two but one flesh.
      9 What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.”
      The Holy Bible : Revised Standard Version Second Catholic edition (2006), with the ecclesiastical approval of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Thomas Nelson Publishing for Ignatius Press.
    • 10 And in the house the disciples asked Him again about this matter.
      11 And He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her;
      12 and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”
    • Jesus is now making His final journey to Jerusalem
    • 10:1-9 Marriage and Divorce
      The Pharisees wanted Jesus to give a self-incriminating answer that would provoke opposition to Him.
      Perhaps He would contradict Deuteronomy 24:1-4.
      All Pharisees agreed that this Old Testament passage
      permitted divorce, that
      only the husband could initiate,
      and that divorce implied the right to remarry.
      They disagreed on the grounds of divorce.
      The strict view of Rabbi Shammai allowed divorce only if a wife were guilty of adultery.
      Rabbi Hillel allowed a husband to divorce his wife for almost any reason.
      If Jesus took sides in this dispute He would divide His followers.
      Even today people are argue over the same issue.
    • Moses
      Maybe Jesus’ position would offend Herod Antipas as John the Baptist had done (cf. 6:17-19).
      Then He would be arrested because He was in Perea and under Herod’s jurisdiction.
      Jesus asked, “3 What did Moses command you?”
      The real question is what did Moses allow?
      “4 Moses permitted him to write a bill of divorce and dismiss her.”
    • 10:4 Why Then Did Moses Permit Divorce?
      Moses instituted the laws to protect women.
      Under Jewish law, only a husband could initiate or carry out a divorce.
      Moses’ civil laws were designed to protect the victims of the divorce.
      Because of Moses’ law, a man could no longer just throw his wife out—he had to write a formal certificate of divorce.
      The certificate of divorce, meant that she could remarry and reclaim her dowry.
      This was a radical step toward civil rights for women, because it made a man think twice before initiating a divorce.
      Moses’ law gave protection to the wife and limited abuses of divorce.
    • Jesus emphasized that marriage, as a permanent relationship between a man and a woman, goes back to God’s purpose at the beginning of creation (Gen. 1:27; 2:24; Ex. 20:14).
      In verse 10 the apostles ask for further clarification 1 1 And He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another, commits adultery against her;
      12 and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”
      Verse 12 indicates that the wife also had the right to divorce her husband, that was not the case in the Jewish community but was the case in the Roman community.
      The Romans allowed for divorce by either party without any stated cause for the divorce.
      Verses 11 and 12 then provided a “universal” law, not just a law for theJews.
      Jesus has then stated that God’s law is more important than Mosaic law and more important than civil law.
