Matthew 23:27-28 says, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so, ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and uncleanness." The Pharisee had cleverly and effectively hidden the existence of these Satanic beliefs from their subjects, but could not hide it from the Omniscient Eyes of Jesus who is God.
Since the Pharisees believed man to be inherently good, they developed a system of salvation based upon works. This system of works was later to be called the Talmud; however, Jesus kept referring to it as the "Traditions of Men". The Bible clearly teaches, however, that man is inherently evil; therefore, there is absolutely no way that man can perform enough good works to completely atone for his evil. Jesus left no doubt that the Pharisees had concocted this system of works.
Both Pagan and true Judaic scholars were looking for a Messiah King to arise to lead mankind into new spiritual light and a new material prosperity. However, the pagans of the secret societies were looking for a Promised Redeemer which was far different than what the Bible taught was to come. Consequently, the people were badly misinformed as to what the true Redeemer was going to accomplish. They were looking for the King Redeemer, not ever being told that much Messianic prophecy was "Suffering Servant". They were looking for a King, but they got a Suffering Servant, and the vast majority missed Him!
