Does Jesus Christ in Matthew 15:4 advocate for murder of disobedient & rebellious kids and teens?
so does that mean Jesus Christ is advocating for murder for kids or teens who are not back in time for curfew? oor other stuff similar to that? I HOPE TO GOD NOT. That is what the case is :( .
The teaching Jesus is advocating is not for putting children to death.It is for chastising the Pharisaical hypocrites who refused to help their father or mother by claiming that they had given it to God.THESE are the ones Jesus was preaching against.
No, he does not advocate violence of any kind.
No, Jesus is LOVE.

Jesus is explaining TORAH, the Jews book to them that they find ways to NOT follow their law.
In Jewish culture...not like ours, it was commanded to honor your own father and mother.
But Jesus brought a NEW TESTAMENT, where your Father is in heaven.
attacking THE HOLY BIBLE WONT HELP U OUT ONE BIT. DEATH COMES AT THE END OF LIFE...DUH ...IT CLEARLY SAYS TO HONOR YOUR PARENTS. IT MEANS SINNERS WILL DIE WHEN THE TIME COMES...UNLESS THEY GET SAVED THEY WILL RAPTURE IF STILL ALIVE AT THAT POINT...DEAD IN CHRIST WILL RISE FIRST BEFORE THE LIVING ONES.
He is explaining scripture to the Pharisees, which is now known as the old testament.
Deut. 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
The death sentence for dishonoring your parents, especially our heavenly Father, is hell. If you honor your parents, you will be part of the kingdom of God, and you will have eternal life
No amount of reading ability nor knowledge will allow anyone to successfully understand meanings in the Bible without full reading through entire books in the Bible. People *think* they can understand without full reading, and are simply mistaken.(Even reading this full passage of verses 1-20 still isn't enough to truly understand all the meaning it has, but will help much over 1 or 2 verses.)
In Matthew 15:4, we are in the midst of several things Christ says to point out how many legalistic Pharisees tried to substitute their own traditions they made up in place of the actual laws they claimed to be following (and were not in essence following).He points out how serious the old Law was (the law being replaced by His new covenant), and how they were distorting that old Law into their own meanings that weren't the law.
Which still happens today in a new way that is parallel though.
Many distortions here in forums today of stuff in both the New and the Old Testament (the 'old covenant' from 3500-2500 years ago that is *no longer in force*, and has been replaced by a 'new covenant' about 2,000 years ago) are based on carefully isolating verses out of context (and sometimes even some will choose a translation that helps add confusion and aid in a misimpression).
Such reading without context (without reading full books) can sometimes even make something appear nearly opposite what it means in context of that situation it came from. And even with full context and clear meaning, plenty in the Old Testament (and New) still much won't make sense unless you read more so that you know the text is saying God will resurrect both the guilty and the innocent/forgiven to face very different outcomes in the afterlife.
It appears that way.
Note that none of the answers denying it have an actual argument, they are just insults.
15:4 was a warning. 15:5-6 go on to state God's will on the matter.
Matthew 15:4 - For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
