Receive Justification: The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

A Pharisee and a Tax Collector walk into the temple… No, this is not the start of an Old Testament joke but instead a parable of Jesus.  Through the use of storytelling, Jesus provided deep lessons on the Kingdom of God and other spiritual topics.  This week, as we look at a story about a Pharisee and a Tax Collector, we will gain a deeper understanding into the gift of Easter and the justification we receive through Jesus’ selfless act on the cross.
