Why Did They Complain to Jesus?

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 15.1-20.
The scribes and Pharisees approached Jesus, not His disciples, but Him (Matthew 15.1), and complained, “Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread” (v. 2). Why could the scribes and Pharisees not approach the disciples? Was it easier to talk behind their backs rather than speaking to them face to face?
Do you complain about people to other people? Why do you do that? If you have a complaint, talk to the one with whom you have the problem.
