Nice to share truth again with our fellow Story of Jesus travelers
... We will now be discussing some interesting individuals who were
constantly following Jesus around starting trouble. Who are these
Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites? Let's find out, shall we? Our
attention is still on Jesus as He teaches in the Temple, while
thousands of people are gathering in Jerusalem for the celebration of
In order to really get a better feel for what's happening, in our Woe
Unto You Scribes and Pharisees Hypocrites in the Bible, consider
this. Jesus knows He's about to die and He's been trying to tell the
Apostles this for some time now, but they don't understand. What do
you say to them and the people that you encounter in the next few
days, to show them that you are their Salvation, and the world's
Salvation until the end of time? What words of love, warning, wisdom,
and Truth would you say to your children in your last days and hours?
We've studied several absolutely awe inspiring parables that Jesus
told and we've related them to modern times, but this time our study
focuses on some warnings that our Savior left us while He was
teaching in the temple just before Passover.
Jesus' lesson was directed to the Scribes and Pharisees
Hypocrites in the Bible. Now here's a little information concerning
the scribes and Pharisees that is important to remember for ever.
These Scribes and Pharisees are still around even today. Who are the
Scribes and Pharisees Hypocrites of our time? They are those who seek
to condemn you for being a sinner, when Jesus brought forth Grace.
I'm not condoning sin, I'm saying, if these Scribes and Pharisees
Hypocrites are looking for Christians to be perfect people, they're
gonna be mighty disappointed, because the only perfect Christian was
Christ. Nor are they sinless. So, Woe Unto You Scribes and Pharisees
Hypocrites that you encounter.
Because of our weaknesses, we rely on His perfection. So, if you ever
find yourself feeling unworthy, remember this TRUTH. Write it down
somewhere and say it to yourself whenever you need to strengthen your
faith. By confessing and repenting for your sins, God forgives you
for them, so admitting you're a sinner will bring you closer to Him,
32:5). This brings forth God's Grace.

Okey dokey, let's find out what Jesus said about the
scribes and Pharisees to the people and His disciples because Jesus
had some harsh words such as Woe Unto You Scribes and Pharisees Hypocrites.
The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses seat. So do whatever they say
to abide by, but don't act in the same manner as they do, because
they don't practice what they preach. They put rules too difficult to
observe on men's shoulders, but they won't take on those burdens
They (The Scribes and Pharisees Hypocrites in the Bible) do all their
works to get admiration from men. They make their phylacteries broad
and their garments fancy. They love the uppermost rooms at feasts,
the best seats in the synagogues, to be recognized in the markets,
and to be called Rabbi, Rabbi. But don't you be called Rabbi, because
only one is your Master, and that's Christ, and all of you are
And call no man on earth your father, because only one is your
Father, which is in heaven. Neither be called masters (leaders)
because only one is your Master, and that's Christ. But whoever is
greatest among you will be your servant. And whoever glorifies
himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
(Listen to this Woe Unto You Scribes and Pharisees Hypocrites in the
Bible accusation) ... You make it too hard for people to enter into
the Kingdom of Heaven. Because you don't go in yourselves, you won't
allow those who are worthy to go in. Woe unto you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! You search the land and sea to make one
convert, and when you do, you make him twice the child of hell than
yourselves. Woe unto you, you blind guides that say, Whoever makes an
oath by the Temple, it doesn't count, but whoever makes an oath by
the gold of the Temple, he's a debtor!
You fools and blind, what's greater, the gold, or the Temple that
sanctifies the gold? And whoever makes an oath by the Altar, it
doesn't count, but whoever makes an oath by the gift that is upon it
is guilty. You fools and blind, what's greater, the gift or the Altar
that sanctifies the gift? So whoever swears by the Altar, swears by
it, and all the gifts upon it. And whoever swears by the Temple,
swears by it, and by Him that abides in it. And whoever swears by
Heaven, swears by the throne of God, and by Him that sits on it.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites! You pay tithes of
mint and anise and cumin, and have left out the more important
matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith. You blind guides, who
strain at a gnat and swallow a camel. Woe unto you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and the
plate, but inside they're full of extortion and excess. You blind
Pharisee, clean the inside of the cup and plate first, so the outside
of them may be clean too. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees,
You're like whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful on the
outside, but are within, full of dead men's bones. In the same way,
you outwardly appear righteous to men, but within, you're full of
hypocrisy and iniquity. Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees,
hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets, and decorate
the graves of the righteous and say, If we had lived in the days of
our ancestors, we wouldn't have killed the prophets.
So, you admit that you're the children of those who killed the
prophets. Finish up then, the actions of your fathers. You serpents,
you brood of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of hell? So I
send to you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you'll kill
and crucify and some of them you'll beat in your synagogues and
persecute them from city to city, so that you're responsible for all
the righteous bloodshed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel
4:8) to the blood of Zacharias (2
Chronicles 24:21) who you slew between the Temple and the Altar.
Truly I say to you, All these punishments will come upon this
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that killed the prophets, and stone them
who are sent to you, how often I wanted to gather your children
together like a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you
wouldn't listen. Look, your house is left to you empty. I say to you,
You will not see me from now on, until you say, Blessed is He that
comes in the name of the Lord.
Woe Unto You Warning
Scribes and Pharisees Hypocrites Danger
At the very beginning of this teaching, Jesus said, The scribes and
Pharisees sit in Moses seat. Now, Moses delivered the law to the
people, interpreted it and encouraged them to obey it. Make no
mistake, Moses would not fit into the scribes or Pharisees category.
Jesus wasn't saying that they were the same, but more like, beware,
you've been given the honor of delivering the law to the people as
Moses did, but instead, you're doing all these bad things because you
are Scribes and Pharisees.
The Scribes and Pharisees hypocrites are those who pretend to have
virtues or qualities that another doesn't have or practice.
Interestingly enough, one definition of the word hypocrisy is the act
of playing a part on the stage, which also fits the description that
Jesus was giving to the scribes and Pharisees. The Scribes and
Pharisees Hypocrites in the Bible love attention.
Woe Unto You Study Explanations
1) A phylactery is a box containing Scripture, traditionally worn
strapped onto the left arm and forehead by Jewish men during morning
and weekday prayers.
2) People who strain at a gnat and swallow a camel are those who make
something little, a big deal, and something big, not important. Woe
Unto You if this describes you. Stop immediately for your soul's sake.
3) The term "whited sepulchre" is still used today to describe a person
inwardly corrupt or wicked, but outwardly appears virtuous or holy.
