Many of the religious leaders who opposed Jesus had a very external – or performance-based – view of religion. To them, maintaining the appearance of being spiritual was as important as actually being spiritual; in some cases, it was even more important. Jesus understood that much of this behavior was based on human traditions, not the commands of God. Jesus redefined a healthy spiritual life as preceding from the inside out, rather than from the outside in.
