After successfully debating with the Pharisees, the Sadducees and a lawyer, Jesus turns to His disciples and the crowd and says something that shocks many contemporary Christians. “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat; therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat; therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it;" I think many contemporary Protestants think about Jesus as abolishing Jewish law, and here He is saying the exact opposite. What He was addressing is the tendency we all have to involve ourselves with the busy-ness of church to avoid the hard work of a Christian.
