Are you a pharisee

Are You A Pharisee?

Mark 8:14-21

Principle Illustrated

(Mark 8:22-26)


Who were the pharisees

Who Were the Pharisees?

  • Charge of "Pharisaism" is commonly made to those trying to live strictly by commands of God

  • Were Pharisees condemned in the Bible because of their strict adherence to God’s word?

  • Word "Pharisee" or a form is used 101 times in NT

    • References are overwhelmingly negative

    • They are repeatedly condemned in the strongest of terms

  • Purpose of this study is to identify why Pharisees were repeatedly condemned by the Lord


Pharisees were hypocritical

Pharisees Were Hypocritical

  • Guilty of hypocrisy emphasized (Matt. 23:1-36)

    • Had differing standards for themselves and others

    • Actions were for show, not a result of true piety

    • Made pretense of spirituality outwardly, but were vile within

    • Emphasized the outward to the exclusion of the inward

    • Made their disciples worse than they were previously

    • Pretended to respect truth & past proclaimers of it, but showed disdain for both provisions & preachers present

  • Those who show hypocrisy today are Pharisees


Pharisees were self righteous

Pharisees Were Self-Righteous

  • Self-righteousness exemplified in Jesus’ story of prayer (Lk. 18:9-14)

  • Sought to justify themselves despite being rightly condemned as lovers of money (Lk. 16:14-15)

  • Case of the lawyer asking, “Who is my neighbor?” was likely a Pharisees (Lk. 10:25-37)

    • At very least, he was heavily influenced by them

    • Effort to get lost in definition shows their mentality

  • Those seeking to self despite wrong & set self as standard for judgment are Pharisees today


Pharisees added to subtracted from god s law

Pharisees Added to & Subtracted from God’s Law

Matthew 15:1-14

Mark 7:1-13

  • Condemned the vain worship of Pharisees

  • Pharisees added & deleted elements of law

  • Pharisees did not strictly adhere to the law

  • Examples: Hand washing & Parental honor

  • “Phariseeism” is not strict adherence to law, but changes the law as given by God...


Mark 7 1 13

Mark 7:1-13

And there are gathered together unto him the Pharisees, and certain of the scribes, who had come from Jerusalem, and had seen that some of his disciples ate their bread with defiled, that is, unwashen, hands. (For the Pharisees, and all the Jews, except they wash their hands diligently, eat not, holding the tradition of the elders; and when they come from the market-place, except they bathe themselves, they eat not; and many other things there are, which they have received to hold, washings of cups, and pots, and brasen vessels.) And the Pharisees and the scribes ask him, Why walk not thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with defiled hands?


Mark 7 1 13 cont

Mark 7:1-13 (cont.)

And he said unto them, Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoreth me with their lips, But their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, Teaching as their doctrines the precepts of men. Ye leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men. And he said unto them, Full well do ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your tradition. For Moses said, Honor thy father and thy mother; and, He that speaketh evil of father or mother, let him die the death: but ye say, If a man shall say to his father or his mother, That wherewith thou mightest have been profited by me is Corban, that is to say, Given to God; ye no longer suffer him to do aught for his father or his mother; making void the word of God by your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things ye do.

God s law versus human law

Law of God

No requirement of hand washing ritual

Required assistance or honor to father and mother independent of other responsibility

Forbade addition or subtraction to law

Tradition of Elders

Made failure to wash a matter of sin

Excused one from aid to parents if that part was called “Corban” (dedicated to God)

Made human will to replace God’s will

God’s Law versus Human Law


Pharisees rejected law on divorce remarriage

Pharisees Rejected Law on Divorce & Remarriage

  • Law of Christ stated on subject (Matt. 19:3-9)

    • Pharisees asked question to Jesus

    • Jesus replied by noting original intent (marriage for life)

    • Pharisees argued for procedure of Mosaic law

    • Jesus announced law of the gospel (only one cause)

  • Paul restated & emphasized the effect of this law as given by Christ (1 Cor. 7:10-11)

  • We have same two problems present today:

    • Some seek to loosen law by denying only one cause

    • Some seek to bind procedure as point of focus


Solution

Solution:

Accept & Teach Law

Without

Addition or Subtraction
