Leaders of the Opposition
Title: Leaders of the Opposition
Publisher: David C Cook
Who are the bad guys of Jesus’ time? The invading Roman army and the homegrown Pharisees. We all love to hate them, with their emphasis on rules and their seeming ignorance of God’s character and priorities. Certainly Jesus both criticized and challenged them, but is there more to them and Jesus’ relationships with them?
Jeff Lucas believes there is. As he seeks to understand who the Pharisees were and what motivated them, so we learn about them—and about ourselves. What would a modern-day Pharisee look like? How can we make sure we don’t become one?
Bible Daily notes are written by Jeff Lucas to help you apply the lessons of God’s Word daily. Each day and with each devotion, Jeff uses his signature wit and wisdom to reveal insights and practical application you can use in your own life. Each Bible devotion takes only a few minutes to read, but the lessons learned can last a lifetime.
