The Woes of the Pharisees is a list of criticisms by Jesus against scribes and Pharisees recorded in the Gospels of Luke –54 and Matthew – Mark –40 and Luke –47 also include warnings about scribes.. Eight are listed in Matthew, and hence Matthew's version is known as the eight are found in Matthew 23 verses 13–16, 23, 25, 27 and Jesus - Jesus - Scribes and Pharisees: In the 1st century, scribes and Pharisees were two largely distinct groups, though presumably some scribes were Pharisees. Scribes had knowledge of the law and could draft legal documents (contracts for marriage, divorce, loans, inheritance, mortgages, the sale of land, and the like). Every village had at least one scribe.
Being a scribe was a profession, one recognized and valued in most ancient world states. It meant being able to take part administratively in all aspects of government and still be able to perform tasks for the common people. Pharisees, on the other hand, were an elite group of priests who also had command of written texts and who interpreted and imposed them. (13) Woe unto youWe enter in these verses on the sternest words of condemnation that ever came from our Lord's lips; but it may be questioned whether our English "Woe unto you" does not exclude too entirely the element of sorrow, as well as indignation, of which the Greek interjection (as in Mark ) is at least capable. Woe for you is, perhaps, a better rendering. The Pharisees and the Sadducees were both religious sects within Judaism during the time of Christ. Both groups honored Moses and the Law, and they both had a measure of political power. The Sanhedrin, the member supreme court of ancient Israel, had members from both the Sadducees and the Pharisees. The differences between the Pharisees and the Sadducees are known to us . As a result of this common Christian assumption, the word “Pharisee” has become a synonym for “hypocrite” in the English language. However, this widespread Christian misreading of the New Testament is a terrible mistake, which, in the course of the last two millennia, often has resulted in appalling consequences for the Jewish community.
Hypocrisy of the Pharisees, Matt Jesus, at this time, was thronged with pilgrims from all over Israel who had come to celebrate the Passover feast. Addressing Himself to them and to His own disciples, Jesus solemnly warned them concerning the scribes and Pharisees (cf. Mark ; Lk ). This discourse, as a whole, is found only in Matthew. Matthew King James Version (KJV). 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne is about the trials and tribulations of Hester Prynne, a woman living in colonial Boston. Found guilty of adultery, Hester’s punishment is to wear a visible symbol of her sin: the scarlet letter “A.” Through the book, the reader comes to know Hester, the adulteress; Dimmesdale, the holy man. Pharisees are an easy target, and I don’t mind drawing a bead because I see the spiritual damage that grows in the culture of legalism. No pastor or church leader likes to see the spirit of.
