Jesus Characterizes the Pharisees

Mark 12:38–40; Luke 20:45–47

23 Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying: a“The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you 1to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for bthey say, and do not do. cFor they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to dbe seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. eThey love the 2best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’
