    This was our Lords last public message. It is a scathing denunciation of false religion that paraded itself under the guise of truth. Some of the common people no doubt were shocked at his words, for they considered the Pharisees righteous.

Jesus spoke very firmly to the religious of the day, who felt they were doing the right thing in preserving religious tradition but ignoring ...read more
