For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Should we do what the Pharisees say to do?
Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:
“Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses. 3 Therefore, whatever they tell you, do and comply with it all, but do not do as they do; for they say things and do not do them.” (Matthew 23:1-3)
“Then they understood that He did not say to beware of the [a]leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” (Matthew 16:12)
(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)
