In The Great Scheme of Things
A word about Pharisees and tax collectors in the context of the first century ancient Near East. Pharisees held to a liberal interpretation of Torah and sought to make observance of the Law available to all. The Pharisee was a prime example of that observance, exceeding the Law’s demands and strictly adhering to the moral and ethical code of his faith. In contrast, tax collectors, were regarded as a collaborators with the occupying Romans. They were seen to be (and sometimes were) unscrupulous, dishonest, the very antithesis of the upright Pharisee.
