What I’m Thinking: Criticizing Religious Leadership

Jesus made some very direct criticism of the religious leaders of his day. They’re the same things that had been said by the prophets about those in previous times – and the same things that can be said in our time, too. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the twenty-third chapter of Matthew (Matthew 23:1-12). […]
