  1. This is an interesting thought, if true. What makes you think this? Jesus frequently points out hypocrisy; is there some commentary on this fact that shows that it accomplishes nothing?

    • Jesus points it out frequently and the only effect is to make the Pharisees resolve to kill him. They do not hang their heads in shame and repent. They just double down on hypocrisy, acting super-holy while murdering God.
