Why did they hate Jesus again?

Recommended Posts

I think it's important be clear on what the opponents of Jesus were feeling when they came against him.


Were the Pharisees against Jesus because they truly thought He was transgressing the Law and the teachings OR were they just indifferent at a person who was getting alot of attention?

I do not believe that they cared about the law as they understood it. In many places, Jesus would question them about what was right or wrong, according to their law, and would refute their "understanding." Basically, they hated him because of the effect he would have on their positions of authority and control. John 11:45-48 says it from their own mouths...

"Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary, and had seen what Jesus did, put their faith in him. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees called a meeting of the Sanhedrin.

“What are we accomplishing?” they asked. “Here is this man performing many miraculous signs. If we let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and then the Romans will come and take away both our place and our nation.”

Then one of them, named Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, spoke up, “You know nothing at all! You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish.”

-Mark

John 12:42Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

43For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
