The Messiah Jesus Christ against hypocrisy

Jesus continued to speak, teaching in the temple: “How come the scribes say that the Messiah is the son of David? David himself said, moved by the Holy Spirit: He said the Lord to my Lord: Sit at my right hand, until I place your enemies as a footstool at your feet. David himself calls him Lord: how then can he be his son? “ And the large crowd listened to him willingly. He told them while he was teaching: “Beware of the scribes, who love to walk in long robes, to receive greetings in the streets, to have the first seats in the synagogues and the first places in the banquets. They devour widows’ houses and show off long prayers; they will receive a more serious sentence “.

Mk 12, 35-40
