Episode The Pharisees | Week 2

When you read the Gospels, the Pharisees play a prominent role. So, when you hear the word "Pharisee," what do you think of? The dictionary defines a Pharisee as "a self-righteous person; a hypocrite." But were all Pharisees self-righteous hypocrites? Did all Pharisees reject Jesus? Or is it possible that how we think about the Pharisees is more of a stereotype? Of course, there are good reasons for the stereotype, but does the stereotype ever break down? Join the group as they lean into a few passages that may shine a new light on "The Pharisees."

In this episode of Discover the Word, Daniel Ryan Day, Elisa Morgan, Rasool Berry, and Vivian Mabuni continue to explore the connections between both sides of these encounters—Jesus and the Pharisees.
