Why did pharsees hate and attack Jesus? They hated Jesus because He threatened their security, prestige,power over the people.Pharisees were and are hypocrites and Jesus knew it. They tried to appear before the world around them as if they were pious men yet inside they were far away from having the heart of God. MATHEW 7:22=="Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22"Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' 23"And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.' AGAIN! I ask,"are you ready to meet JESUS TODAY?
