The Pharisee and the Tax Collector


The final parable of Jesus we’ll look at is one of His best known but often misunderstood. He contrasts a Pharisee (who would have been understood as the “good guy” by Jesus’ original hearers) and a tax collector (who ends up being a most unexpected “hero”) who go up to the temple to pray. The story illustrates in vivid and unexpected ways what makes a person acceptable in God’s sight. This is the heart of Christianity and the pathway to entering His Kingdom!
