The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: all therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works (Matt. 23:2, 3)
Jesus was in agreement with the teaching of the Pharisees in their respect for Scripture, and even on some individual issues. For example, he supported their belief in immortality, denied by the Sad-ducees (see Mark 12:18—27). His denunciations of the Pharisees center on the ceremonial excesses of rabbinic Judaism. These practices fostered a preoccupation with self, consequently diminishing men's reliance on God and sensitivity to the needs of other men.
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure (Phil. 2:13)
