17 偽善的法利賽人  

法利賽人或稱法利賽派,是猶太社群中為信仰戮力潔身自愛,與世俗保持距離者。他們自視為解釋先知與摩西律法的權威,卻因自以為義的驕傲,和固守律法形式條文,漠視他人的困乏;反倒扭曲遮蔽了摩西律法根基於愛神與愛人的精神。為此耶穌不循情面的揭發其偽善,並提醒世人謹防法利賽人的酵(影響);即謹防那些聲稱追尋掌握真理,實則高估自己而扭曲真理,導人誤入歧途的宗教哲學。

Pharisees was a major religious society of Judaism. They were known as chasidim, which means loyal to God—extremely ironic in view of the fact that by His name, they became the most vocal enemy of Jesus Christ and His messages. They were puffed up with pride and adhered only to the letter of the law while completely misconstrue the basic tenets of the Law of Moses which is to love each other as you love God. To this Christ had harsh words about the Pharisees and warned against anyone to proclaim to be a believer of truth yet twist the truth for one’s own haughty desires.
