Jesus is invited to dinner at the home of a Pharisee. Due to a confrontation regarding ceremonial hand-washing, Jesus uses the opportunity to rebuke the Pharisees and lawyers for their religious hypocrisy. This account gives us warning as well, that we might guard ourselves from slipping into pharisaical, religious hypocrisy.

Misplaced Fears

Luke 12:4-12 • August 2, 2020 • Kevin Maloney

In this passage, Jesus calls his followers not to be afraid of the things everyone else is afraid of. The life he calls us to requires constant courage. But this doesn’t mean a life with no fear, but that our fears are well-placed.
