"And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” -Luke 20:45-47 (ESV)
Now I know this is wasn’t what the scribes looked like. And I know it technically better Illustrates the Pharisees than the scribes (Pharisees were higher up than the scribes) BUT look at that attitude 👀. And I love that it has chains with him. The I’m better than you and you need to know it attitude.
You can know the Bible upside and down and still be a heathen at heart. It’s not about what you know- it’s about WHO you know.
They didn’t know Jesus. They only knew of him and that is definitely NOT the same thing.
