Down through the centuries Jews have been maligned and persecuted by so-called Christians. As we listen to Jesus' accusations against the Pharisees of his day, we must not fall into the bigotry of seeing these negatives only in a religious group different than our own. Jesus' penetrating analysis exposes the hypocrisy, and the externality in all of our self-righteous scruples. Ask this question as you listen, "Why will prostitutes, tax-collectors, and thieves be welcomed at the gates of heaven, while some ministers, doctors of theology, and ecclesiastical authorities will be turned away?"
