Oh, confusion, confusion.
Anyway, the letter from the Pharisees. You probably want to read it, don't you? So here it is. Remember, I asked them why they didn't get along with Jesus, and they've read his letter that I posted a while ago.
We’re glad that someone has finally asked this question, even if it is you. Your brother tricked us into coming down here, but God will eventually forgive us our transgressions and we will be out.
This Jesus was deceiving all of the people. He was telling them lies of him being the Messiah and The Son of God. It was all lies!
He disrupted our oxen and white dove sellers and our money changers in the temple area with whips. He said we were running a market place. We were sustaining the temple as it was! This was a complete overreaction.
We arrested him because he was a danger to The Faith, to the community and even to himself.
We believe that we did right. He was a blasphemer because he was going against the true will of God. He was healing on the Sabbath and claiming to be Lord of the Sabbath and he had a complete disregard for Jewish Laws. He was associating with the sinners and the tax collectors- the selfish and sinful people of the world- the dirty people. He was forgiving them their sins and in doing so was taking away our power. He was a renegade preacher!
So we know not why we are here, since we did right. We thought we were sinless when we passed away. But we found ourselves on the path to hell before we could turn around.
This is where we will leave our letter.
