What did Jesus mean: it’s not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man?

Matthew 15:11; Matthew 15:!6-20

This passage doesn’t say that nothing we eat defiles us. It’s talking about eating with unwashed hands! 😲 See verses 2 and 20 for the context of what’s being discussed. When we read only one verse without reading for context, we often risk misinterpreting the Bible.
