Yeshua has told us that unless our righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, we cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Yet works of righteousness pursued zealously with all our might will fall short. What can be done? How does one translate the righteousness that comes by faith into holy behaviors that exceed the righteousness of those who were the community’s anointed gatekeepers?
