    I'd submit that there isn't any non-trivial blanket characterization of any group with significant numbers of individuals in it. Some of the Pharisees followed Christ, such as very famously Saul of Tarsus (after persecuting Christians unto death). Some did not. Some sought God, some did not. There isn't a blanket approval or disapproval, but Christ did meet some that were not at all righteous we can see. (it could be they sought him out to try to challenge him) But if you chose 50 random individuals, you'd get a mixed group I'd expect.

    Yeah. This same lord had already destroyed his neighbouring city on a huff because his neighbours didn't want to come. Then he goes barging around taking travellers off the roads, then he complains because one hadn't got the right dress code on.
    To hell with lords like that.

    so you claim. I am not as confident in the accuracy of the texts.

    Well, it was a parable, and the carpenter was takking about the Temple and its corrupted priesthood.

    Nothing wrong with the teller, but there might be with whoever mangled the interpretation. :)

    I can't agree.....

    the parable was aimed at anyone with ears that hear

    That's fair enough Thief.
    My 'take' on the gospels is unusual, after all.
    All the best,. OB
