The Gospel of Matthew, Part 27
The Sacred and The Swine
Some of the things Jesus says or does can be confusing. However, once we dig deeply into it, he makes sense…usually.

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. — Matthew 7:6
