Furthermore, there is virtually no one in our country today who has not, in some way, been touched by it. As such, both divorce and remarriage are simultaneously common, but touchy, subjects. And in this text, Jesus lays down a teaching on divorce and remarriage that is so hard even his disciples have a hard time stomaching it (v.10). So what is Jesus really trying to convey in these difficult words?
