This question evades most of us our entire lives. However, as Christians, this idea and its subsequent queries should lead our everyday lives. Emphasizing the most progressive sect of Jesus' daythe Phariseesthis book takes the reader on a journey to uncover the political, religious, and social elements which hindered the greatest religious leaders of Jewish antiquity from seeing Jesus for who he truly was. If we cannot understand how Jesus was missed by those who claimed to love and know God more than anyone else, we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.
Through the revelations encountered in this book, the reader will be faced with facts which directly contrast what we've come to believe about these men. These men aren't who we've been led to believe . . . not even close. In fact, the reader will be confronted with an earth-shattering ultimatum: Who do we identify with more? The Pharisees? Or Jesus?
The answer to this question has the ability to transform our understanding of Jesus and how we interact with him in our everyday lives. Furthermore, the answer to this question can transform our lives to become ones marked by humility and wisdom like we never knew possible.
