A sect in the days of our Lord, remarkable for their scrupulous exactness to certain points, while relaxed in the higher principles of real vital godliness. The name Pharisee is derived from a root signifying separation, and suited to them, from their being very singular in their order. For the character of the Pharisee I refer to Matthew 23:1-39, throughout. The modern Pharisee of the present hour is he that prides himself upon the rectitude of his own heart, and ventures his everlasting welfare upon the merit of his good works before God; or, in a less degree, takes to himself the consolation of being part his own Saviour, and hoping that Christ will make up the deficiency. The portrait of such an one we have, Luke 18:9-14.
