UNDAILY Episode 71

Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So, you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

MATTHEW 23, 1-12 (NIV)


Today, anyone can be a star on their own web portal, and the desire to be noticed, appreciated, and even revered is stronger than ever. Jesus, in a monologue that feels more like a coffee conversation than a sermon from on high, draws attention to what we might call "the ancient phenomenon of influencers."


He speaks about the scribes and Pharisees, who, one could say, had more followers than the average Instagram user. The Messiah criticizes the attitude of the scribes and Pharisees, who were theoretically supposed to lead people to live in accordance with the Decalogue but themselves... did not follow God's commandments.
