The Pharisees were experts on the books of the Law and the Prophets (Old Testament). They knew all of the hundreds of prophecies of the Messiah. As such, they should have been Jesus’’ greatest advocates and His most loyal disciples. Instead, they were His greatest earthly enemies. They opposed Him as every turn, and conspired to have Jesus killed. Why? Because the Pharisees were religious Mystics and comparative thinkers. Comparative thinking leads to brain damage. Over the years, they became so brain damaged and blinded by their own religious pride, that they didn’t even recognized the Redeemer they had been longing for. In this week’s podcast, we will examine why the Jews rejected their Messiah.
