The pharisees thought they knew it all, until they met Jesus.

Key Points:

  • Pharisees were religious people who thought they were better than everyone else.
  • Jesus and the Pharisees didn’t always get along.
  • The Pharisees knew a lot, but they missed the most important part. Matthew 23:1-4
  • Jesus cares more about our hearts than our smarts.

Memory Verse:

Matthew 23:11 The greatest among you must be a servant.
