CHRISTIANS: DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE PHARISEES OR DO YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS?

CHRISTIANS: DO YOU BELIEVE IN THE PHARISEES OR DO YOU BELIEVE IN JESUS?

Just because something is said in Scripture doesn’t mean it’s true. You also have to look at the person who is being quoted in Scripture to get comprehension.

“THE PHARISEES SAID IT”

People say Jesus ate with sinners because “the Pharisees said it.”

BUT when you look at what Jesus was actually doing, Jesus was preaching Repentance.

His message and everything that He stood for PRECEDED Him. He was calling sinners to repentance.

So when people came to eat with Him, they were coming in repentance. So he ate with repenters!

In reality, the only sinners He ate with were the Pharisees themselves, because they were the ones that hated Him! They were the only ones that He conflicted with at dinnertime, because they were the only unrepentant ones at the table.

Everybody else had already came to Him in humility and repentance.

Luke 5:32 I came not TO CALL the righteous, but SINNERS TO REPENTANCE. – Jesus

“THE PHARISEES SAID IT”

People say Jesus violated the Sabbath because “the Pharisees said it.”

BUT when you look at what was actually happening, Jesus did not reject the Sabbath.

He did His WORK of Ministry (healing, teaching, feeding, delivering) on the Sabbath because He was the New High Priest!

Even in the Old Testament, priests always did their Work of the Ministry (butchering, barbecuing, collecting, feeding, teaching, cleansing) on the Sabbath.

The Pharisees were JEALOUS that He and His Apostles were coming to take their job!

As if that didn’t make them angry enough, Jesus quickly escalated the situation by claiming DAVIDIC Authority AND DIVINE Authority – that He Ruled the Sabbath because He was Lord and King.

Luke 6:5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is LORD also OF THE SABBATH. – Jesus

That’s why the Pharisees hated Him! Not because He wasn’t keeping the Sabbath, but because He Was the New Priest and King IN CHARGE of the Sabbath.

They didn’t like their new boss!

The Pharisees were ENVIOUS of Jesus, and THEIR WORDS were LIES.

Jesus is TRUTH, and His Words are TRUE!

We really have to stop taking the cues of our understanding of Jesus from the envious lies that the Pharisees said.

We must use a stronger form of reading comprehension and humility when we read the Scriptures.

Don’t Believe the Jealous Lies About Jesus!

Let’s Keep the Commandments of GOD and the Faith of JESUS!

Happy Sabbath!
