I have written extensively about the “heart” of the man and how messed up it can be, you can search in the box to the right to see the other posts.
Mark Chapter 7 begins with most modern translations having a heading something similar to; That which defiles, The Traditions of the Elders, Traditions and Commandments, or my two favorites; Jesus Teaches about Inner Purity (NLT) and Lo que contamina al hombre (What pollutes man) RVR 1960.
Today’s main text comes from Mark 7:14-23, depending on your translation you may have another heading the AMP for example begins the Chapter with Followers of Traditions and adds The Heart of Man.
