The Pharisees in Matthew 23 Reconsidered

by Seng Ja Layang

Layang defends and analyses the view that the actions of the Pharisees, and the condemnation they receive in Matthew 23 are consistent with the context of Jesus’s time on earth. Layang tackles the dating controversy of the Pharisees in this chapter and the chapter’s subsequent authenticity. An interesting and in-depth study that credits Matthew 23 as historically reliable and authoritative as part of the Word of God, giving a convincing counter-argument to recent critical thought.
