Summary

Ritual purity, which depends on the Temple and its customs to relieve people of their burdens, falls short of the cleaness demanded in the Bible. Does touching something really make you unclean, or was the Law given to show that you are not clean and you cannot make yourself clean? At this point, whether or not we got the point is a mute point, since the Temple has been destroyed.

Richard and Fr. Marc discuss the Gospel of Matthew 9:18-26.
