    As Christ said in Matthew , “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.” Since Christ has fulfilled the law, we know that “Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to .   (Matthew ) "For I say to you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven." I am a "scribe". This mean that I write (Christian and other) books. The modern word for "scribe" may be "book author". The words.

      For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. –20 ESV). Do you believe your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees? Consider that Jesus’ statement would have been shocking to the multitudes. The scribes and Pharisees had given Author: Berry Kercheville.   “For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew ) Jesus tells the people that their righteousness must exceed the righteousness of the Pharisees. Think about how hard that would be to hear for the people listening!

    In particular they refer to Matthew “For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven,” and to , “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”. In contrast to the two commands of Christ, the Pharisees had developed a system of laws, negative commands and positive laws By the time Christ came it had produced a heartless, cold, and arrogant brand of righteousness. As such, it contained at least ten tragic flaws. (1) New laws continually need to be invented for new situations.

The righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees considered by Gilbert Tennent Download PDF EPUB FB2

The Righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees may be said to consist in these two Generals, viz. 1st. In a certain Blamelessness or Freedom from gross Crimes. And 2dly, In a strict Conformity to the moral and ceremonial Laws.

As to the Law, Paul, while a Pharisee, was blameless, Phil. 3 Chap. Read Matthew What does Jesus mean when He says that unless our righteousness “surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law” (NIV), we cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.

Though salvation has always been by faith, and though Judaism, as it should have been practiced, was always a system of grace, legalism did creep in, as it can in any religion that takes. So it would do us well to consider the reality that we must move beyond human righteousness, which is what the Pharisees had too much of and grossly misunderstood.

Webster’s Dictionary defines righteousness as: “conforming to the moral law; for anyone to be righteous. That’s the kind of righteousness that far exceeds the Pharisees, who in reality, were not righteous at all. Their only righteousness was self-righteousness, and that’s not the righteousness that they need to enter the kingdom.

This righteousness is accredited to us. ” (Rev. Even though scribes were not considered in a negative light like the tax collectors, their level of righteousness was not considered to be high by many. Second, the Pharisees too were not considered as most righteous of all Jews at least by : Dr.

Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg. Matthew King James Version (KJV). 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in.

The statement is not merely comparative, but implies an abundance (cf. 1 Thessalonians )even in the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees. The Jewish spirit reckons up good actions as producing in many cases even a superfluity of righteousness. But the righteousness which Christ's disciples must have needs to be still more abundant.

Even their name drips with self-righteousness, as they are the “separated ones,” which is from the Aramaic (Semitic) and comes from “perishayya,” meaning “separated, separatist,” and.

The “righteousness” of the Pharisees was based on outward, visible actions. It was not necessarily a righteousness based on the heart and on devotion to God. Theirs was a righteousness based on doing things which may or, more likely, may not have been joined by having a righteous attitude.

Scribes vs Pharisees. So what is the difference between scribes and Pharisees. Being a scribe was a profession, one recognized and valued in most ancient world states. It meant being able to take part administratively in all aspects of government and still be able to perform tasks for the common people.

Jesus - Jesus - Scribes and Pharisees: In the 1st century, scribes and Pharisees were two largely distinct groups, though presumably some scribes were Pharisees.

Scribes had knowledge of the law and could draft legal documents (contracts for marriage, divorce, loans, inheritance, mortgages, the sale of land, and the like). Every village had at least one scribe. That is the righteousness that exceeds (Matthew ) the righteousness that the Scribes and Pharisees believed in.

Not a righteousness wherein you merely refrained from murder, but one where you refrained from simple anger. Not a righteousness wherein you refrained from physical adultery, but righteousness where your very thoughts are pure. Wesley's Notes for Matthew The righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees - Described in the sequel of this discourse.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew Mt Your righteousness shall exceed. The righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees has just been referred to. See Mt Let us turn our attention for a while to the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees.

It is evident from our text that the scribes and Pharisees were breaking some commandments of God. Matt. tells us of one such instance. Some scribes and Pharisees asked Jesus concerning one of. Matthew says, “For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”   Matthew, chaptersis what is commonly called the Sermon on the Mount.

; [Three lines from Luke] Tennent, Gilbert, The Righteousness That Exceeds That Of The Pharisees Prince Gabriel Okocha (Mat ) For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

The “righteousness” of the scribes and Pharisees to which the Master referred is not exoneration and justification in the final judgment, rather it refers to the sum of one’s good deeds, from giving charity to visiting the sick to self-sacrifice to Torah observance.

By denying that Jesus expels demons with God’s power, the scribes and Pharisees are at risk of blaspheming the holy spirit. Hence, whose side will they take —God’s or Satan’s. Jesus says: “Either you make the tree fine and its fruit fine or make the tree rotten. Our righteousness can exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees only when we trust in the atoning work of Christ alone so that the finished work of Christ justifies us.

Being then justified not “by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ” (Galatians ), our righteousness greatly exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees. The righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees consisted of seeking the acceptance of God by their careful adherence to their rules and traditions.

“I keep more rules than you do, so I’m more righteous than you!” But the righteousness that exceeds this comes from faith in God.Jesus: Luke [9]He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: [10]"Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

[11]The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ’God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax.For I say unto you, except your righteousness exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

GW I can guarantee that unless you live a life that has God’s approval and do it more faithfully than the experts in Moses’ Teachings and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
