The Pharisees asked Jesus whether a man could divorce his wife lawfully? Jesus asked them what the Law of Moses said. “They said, ‘Moses permitted a man to write a certificate of divorce, and to dismiss her'” (Mark 10:4).
They obviously knew what the Law said, but they wanted to hear what Jesus had to say, and perhaps they were ready to condemn Him for anything that they thought contradicted the Law.
Yes, the Lord through Moses permitted divorce, but that was not God’s original intention for creating a man and a woman. We should always strive to fulfill God’s original purpose for creating us.
