     Jesus offended the Pharisees also.  This group of priests and elders were among the leaders of Israel.  To them, true religion was too holy for everyday life.  Holiness meant being separate from others, and superior to them. 

     Instead of hiding away to show His holiness, Jesus mingled with people, helping those in need.  He showed that real religion is not only for special occasions.  In all times and places, He showed that He cared about others.  He would often place His own meal in the hands of a hungry person.  He took time to encourage and talk about God’s love for all people.
