The Pharisees were religious and very rigid. However, they followed human tradition to the exclusion of the true meaning of the Scriptures (Matt 15:1-3). It seemed that they cared more about rules, regulations and rituals than people. They felt threatened by the Christ’s ministry because His teaching from the Bible contradicted their oral traditions. Constantly challenging His ministry and accusing Him of blasphemy, they wanted Him eliminated at any cost.
