3 Sara Di Diego = "Corban was "an offering dedicated to God...and thereby withdrawn from secular uses such as parental support.  What the Markan Jesus criticizes here is the practice of making pseudo-vows, i.e., declaring something an offering to God only if and when someone else, e.g., one's parents, attempted to make us of it" (Attridge 1736).Work Cited:Attridge, Harold W., Wayne A.
