Hollow Religion

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 5

Luke 11:37  (ID: 2168)

When he invited Jesus to a meal, a Pharisee got more than He bargained for: Jesus confronted him with his own hypocrisy. Exploring this surprising encounter, Alistair Begg explains that while religion was the primary concern of the Pharisees, it was almost always hollow and false. Jesus’ rebuke should be a warning to us, too: God is interested first in what we are before He looks at what we do.


Woes to the Pharisees and Lawyers

37While Jesus5 was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him, so he went in and reclined at table.
