Matthew 23:25 - 23:28

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this passage from the book of Matthew, Steve Gregg discusses the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, who focused on outward displays of cleanliness but were corrupt inside. Jesus compares them to cups and dishes that are clean on the outside, but full of greed and self-indulgence on the inside. Gregg emphasizes the importance of true inner cleanliness and not just outward religiosity, calling for a change in behavior and a focus on personal transformation rather than seeking religious reputation.
