Pharisees and Christianity

Post by jancancook on Thu Mar 24, 2011 3:02 am

Outside of Jewish history and writings, the Pharisees have been made notable by references in the New Testament to conflicts between themselves and John the Baptist[5] and with Jesus, and because Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea, both members of the sect, buried Jesus' body at great personal risk. Gamaliel, the highly respected rabbi and defender of the apostles, was also a Pharisee. There are also several references in the New Testament to Paul of Tarsus being a Pharisee before he became a Christian.[6] Christian traditions have been a cause of widespread awareness of (and, according to Jews, misconception about or prejudice against) the Pharisees among the world's roughly two billion Christians.
