  1. Luke 18:9-14 The Pharisee And The Tax Collector

  2. A Lesson Not Learned: How to be saved. • The Pharisee and the Tax Collector were both already in a covenant relationship with God. – v. 10 • No “Sinner’s Prayer” here. • They lived under the Law of Moses. • Colossians 2:11-14 • Luke 24:46-47, Acts 2:37-38

  3. The Contrast In The Men, Luke 18:10 • The Pharisee • Acts 26:5 “the strictest sect of our religion” • Rulers of the nation, Matthew 23:1-3 • Matthew 15:1-3, 7-9

  4. The Contrast In The Men, Luke 18:10 • The Tax Collector • An agent of the hated Roman government. • Matthew 10:3 • Matthew 5:46-47 • Luke 7:34

  5. Contrast in the Prayers The Pharisee, Luke 18:11-12 • Completely satisfied with himself • Saw no lack • Sought no mercy • Confessed no sin • Revelation 3:14-18, 2 Corinthians 10:18, Ephesians 2:8-10

  6. Contrast in the Prayers The Tax Collector, Luke 18:13 • Humble, James 4:6-10 • Understanding of his condition, Romans 3:10, 3:23 • Seeking God’s mercy, Ephesians 2:1-5

  7. Contrast In Results Luke 8:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” “There is something a bit terrifying about this parable. There is within every person that which makes it possible for him to do the same thing the Pharisee did. He can go to the place of worship and go through the forms of worship and still go home the same person he was!” Ray Summers, Commentary on Luke (Waco, Texas: Word Books, Publisher, 1974), p. 210

  8. Obey the gospel today! • Believe – John 8:24 • Repent – Luke 13:3 • Confess – Matthew 10:32-33 • Be Baptized – Mark 16:16 • Be Faithful – Revelation 2:10
