Unmasking Hypocrisy

May 14, 2023

Mark 12:35-44

Sermon by Pastor Nick Krauss; Sermon Text Mark 12:35-44

In Mark 12:35-44, Jesus goes on the offensive against the religious leadership by asking some questions of his own, unmasking their hypocrisy. Hypocrisy is a perpetual problem in the life of the church: a stain on the reputation of the Bride of Christ, a corrosive problem affecting both its membership and its leadership. Sometimes hypocrites vainly deceive themselves with false hopes and carnal presumptions of being in the favor of God (see WCF 18.1), but Jesus reveals the harsh reality that most are charlatans who are not self-deluded but are deceiving others. Jesus is able to unmask the hypocrites in a way that will be instructive for His people.
