Main point summary
Main point summary
Like He does in many areas of life, Jesus calls us to even higher standards of obedience than the Old Testament law. He commands us not to divorce on the grounds that divorce is the antithesis of what God has done in joining the two together in marriage (note that God creates the marriage). We are but man and he is God, He has created the marriage and we have no right to dissolve it. Ignoring the commands of Jesus is sin therefore divorce must be considered sinful according to this passage (no exceptions are given). Furthermore, if we ignore this command and we do divorce, and go as far as “marrying” another, this “marriage” is a sham and we live in a consistent state of adultery against our true spouse.
Mark 10:2-12
And Pharisees came up and in order b to test him asked,
The Pharisees wanted to back Jesus into a corner. They asked,
c “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?”
“Is a man allowed to divorce his wife?”
He answered them, “What did Moses command you?”
Jesus asked them what Moses told them in the scriptures
They said, d “Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of divorce
They said that Moses said a man is allowed to write a certificate of divorce
and to send her away.”
And send his wife away.
And Jesus said to them, “Because of your e hardness of heart
Jesus told them because of their hardness of heart
he wrote you this commandment.
Moses allowed for divorce.
But f from the beginning of creation,
But this is not what God intended from the beginning of creation.
‘God made them g male and female.’
God made man and woman
h ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother
In order that a man one day would leave his mom and dad
and hold fast to his wife, 1
And marry a woman.
and i the two shall become one flesh.’
Resulting in them becoming one body.
So they are no longer two
So they are no longer separate,
but one flesh.
But one.
j What therefore God has joined together,
Therefore, since God has created this marriage and joined them together and they are now one,
let not man separate.”
I command you to not divorce.
And in the house
In private
the disciples asked him again about this matter.
The disciples asked Jesus further about this topic.
And he said to them, k “Whoever divorces his wife
Jesus explained further that if a husband divorced his wife
and marries another
And marries another woman
commits adultery against her,
He commits adultery against his first wife (therefore the marriage is not legitimate but is consistent sin)
and l if she divorces her husband
And likewise if a wide divorces her husband
and marries another,
And marries another man,
she commits adultery.”
She too is in the midst of committing adultery (a new marriage therefore does not cancel a previous marriage covenant)
