“Whoever curses their parents shall be put to death” ~ the shocking teaching of Jesus that Christians ignore

Exodus 21:17
Whoever curses father or mother shall be put to death.

Leviticus 20:9
All who curse father or mother shall be put to death; having cursed father or mother, their blood is upon them.

Matthew 15:4-7 New International Version (NIV)

For God said, ‘Honor your father and mother’[a] and ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[b] But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is ‘devoted to God,’they are not to ‘honor their father or mother’ with it. Thus you nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition. You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you:


  1. Matthew 15:4 Exodus 20:12; Deut. 5:16
  2. Matthew 15:4 Exodus 21:17; Lev. 20:9

  1. All christians today are hypocrites by Jesus’ standards.
    No wonder that he will say
    “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”


  2. To refresh the memory of some christian hypocrites.
