Woe to the Experts

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 5

Luke 11:45  (ID: 2169)

After delivering a series of “woe”s to the Pharisees, Jesus turned to the teachers of the law with some equally reproachful words. In this message, Alistair Begg breaks down Jesus’ three rebukes. The teachers Jesus confronted burdened the people with needless rules, participated in their fathers’ persecution of the prophets, and woefully led the people away from the true key to the Scriptures: Christ Himself. We, too, should practice self-examination so we can be careful not to lead others astray.


45One of the lawyers answered him, “Teacher, in saying these things you insult us also.”
