But He said to them

JESUS CHRIST WAS constantly engaged in controversy with the church leaders of His day…


They were critical of Him; He was even more outspokenly critical of them.  


He did not hesitate when necessary to dissent from their views in public, or to warn the people of their false teaching.


“Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees,” He said to His disciples.  John R.W. Stott, “Authority: Tradition or Scripture?”, Christ the Controversialist, 65


“At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”  But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him.”  Matthew 12.1-3
