Well ..

I would like to ask one thng ...

please stop using the term "Pharisee" as an epithet.  Perhaps your Jewish origins were too thin to understand but your own Jesus was a follower of these teachers whose greatest goal was to use non violence to resist the Roman oppressors.

Later, with the Roman wars, the destruction of the church of James in Israel,  and the effort to create a distinct Christian religion amongst the Romans, the Pharisees were demonized.  Modern Chrsitian scholars, however, trace much of what is in Jesus' words (as opposed to Paul) to the Pharisees.

Finally, our son is named for Hillel, the greatest of the Pharisees and likely the man who inspired Jesus.

You might benefit from reading some of what is attributed to this amazing man who was the great intellectual ancesterfor ML King, Cesar Chaves, and M Gandhi in our own time.

I would be pleased to get a response.

Stay informed
