Mark 7:14-15 ” Again, Jesus called the crowd to Him and said, ‘Listen to Me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a man can make him unclean by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean.’ “

The long-held Jewish Law was being turned upside down by Jesus in this scripture.  He was in a way giving the crowd an Anatomy and Physiology lesson in explaining that nothing they could ingest would ever defile their hearts…their inner self.  Rather,  Jesus explained to them that it was what came out of a man…in word and deed…that degraded and profaned him.
