Jesus’ Ministry Among Hypocrites

“And remember, Jesus saw hypocrisy far more clearly and deeply than we can. His X-ray eyes penetrated every pharisaical mask and disguise to detect every gross contradiction between lips and life. And even more painful for Him, He saw the double standards and inconsistencies in even the best of His disciples. His painful experience of hypocrisy was a large part of His sin-atoning sufferings. But they also gave Him an ongoing sympathy and empathy with us. However pained we are by phony faith, we can take our pain to someone who felt it even more deeply.” -David Murray, The Happy Christian
