When you read the New Testament, you will find that the Pharisees were the religious leaders of the day and they held power and prestige over the people. Anyone who dared oppose them became the target of their anger and wrath. Jesus’s teachings frequently challenged the authority of the Pharisees and publicly chastised them on a number of issues. Consequently, the Pharisees, even though they knew Jesus was right, they set out to destroy him. They tried to twist everything He said and did and when that didn’t work, they made up false charges against him and continued their relentless attacks until Jesus was nailed up on the cross.
