The Pharisee in Me

In reading the gospel accounts of the life of Jesus in the Bible we are confronted with a group associated with the religious establishment called the Pharisees. This influential group were among the most religiously zealous people in Israel. They also were among the most ardent enemies of Jesus. How can highly religious people go so far astray? We also may  be shocked to find out that there might be a little Pharisee in us.
