Articles about Mark 7

The Gospel of Mark is an account of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. It’s believed the earliest of the four gospels. Chapter 7 shows Jesus teaching that what goes into us doesn’t make us unclean, but what comes out. He also encountered a Greek woman from Syria, and healed a man who was deaf and could barely talk.

Jewish men of that time, by and large, did not speak to Gentiles (non-Jews). They especially did not speak to women. In fact, it's said that they went so far out of their way to avoid contact with women and Gentiles that they would cross the street to avoid passing next to them.
