The movement of Mark 7 has been Jesus teaching about where true defilement comes from. Jesus taught the problem of defilement is not external but internal.

The series up to this point has been called The King’s Cross because Mark is picturing for us the arrival of the king who calls for true discipleship from all his subjects.
