In His teaching, Jesus exposed the Pharisees’ love of money, affirmed God’s law, and preached His kingdom—and in response, the Pharisees ridiculed Him. How did a group who seemed to have it all together completely miss the point? Alistair Begg helps us understand that the qualities that set the Pharisees against Jesus are still common, even in today’s church. The gate into God’s kingdom, he reminds us, is narrow, requiring a humble recognition of our need for a Savior.
14The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things, and they ridiculed him.
