The Good & Bad of the Pharisees

The Pharisees are not remembered for good things and Matthew 23 reserves some of Jesus' harshest words for them. But even here there are a couple of good qualities Jesus draws attention to, and the rest of the New Testament paints a bigger picture for them as well. Yes, they miss the point time and time again, but perhaps they will eventually see this and repent. And perhaps, we today will see the same problems in our lives as Christians and repent as well.
