Who Were the Pharisees?

Joshua Garroway writes a must-read article for all Christian teachers, preachers, seminarians, social activists, auto-mechanics, astrophysicists, plumbers, theologians, sextons, and bros.

I will require all my Introduction to New Testament students to read this short but important article. And it's not just because I'm an avid Sound of Music fan.



  1. Very nice, although Etka Liebowitz has just published a piece suggesting that alleged Pharisaic hypocrisy is not just a Christian thing which is well worth a read:

  2. Good little article, but unfortunately still tied to the Neusnerian notion that purity concerns imply an attempt to replicate Temple holiness.
