After exposing the hypocrisy and twisted priorities of the scribes and Pharisees, Jesus takes the opportunity to teach the crowds the true source of defilement. When His disciples ask Him later in private about His statement, He explains that the problem is not outside us, but within. Our hearts are the source of the sin that pollutes and corrupts. And if this is the case, then no amount of hand washing will do. We need more than simple improvement, we need transformation. We need a new heart.
