James 1: 17-27: Christians virtues are urged by the writer of this letter, who exhorts people to be doers of the word and not merely hearers.
Mark 7: 1-8; 14-15; 21-23: Jesus is in conflict with the Pharisees, who are upset because Jess' disciples do not follow the practice of ritual hand washing before meals. Jesus is not worried about external things, but is more concerned with the inner disposition of the heart.
: Behavior matters, but so do the intentions, which motivate behavior.
