Matthew 23:29 - 23:33

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg discusses Matthew 23:29-33, in which Jesus calls out the hypocrisy of the Pharisees who claim to honor the prophets that their fathers killed, while also plotting to kill Jesus and persecuting his disciples. Gregg explains the Old Testament imagery of a cup being filled with guilt and how the guilt of the Pharisees' fathers and their own actions will lead to the wrath of God being poured out upon them. He also touches on the idea of silencing messengers and destroying reputations as forms of punishment. Ultimately, Gregg reminds listeners that even God's own people will be judged and urges them to avoid hypocritical behavior.
