Pharisee is derived from Latin pharisæus, -i; from Hebrew פְּרוּשִׁים pĕrûshîm, pl. of פָּרוּשׁ pārûsh, meaning “set apart”, Qal passive participle of the verb פָּרָשׁ pārāsh, through Greek φαρισαῖος, -ου pharisaios.;)

Chapter 1.  Today, pharisee is similar to “priests and pastors of religious denominations”.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
First Chapter

Beloved brethren, our Lord Jesus Christ proclaimed the Gospel or the Good News of the Kingdom of Heaven, saying, FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.

For God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in The Name of the only begotten Son of God (JOHN 3:16-18

JOHN 3:16-18
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

). Yes, of a truth, this is one of the most, if not the most.

Beautiful and Inspiring Passages in the Holy Bible that many Christians today enjoy quoting and some even preach as their main theme. Sad to say, however, my dear brethren, that this Good News that our Lord has proclaimed has not been given the proper and sufficient explanation it deserves, to the end that it may work effectually unto the real believers. And so now, the Spirit of The Lord has inspired and moved me, His lowly and unworthy servant and your brother in Christ, to write a more expounding and comprehensive explanation regarding this much-endearing proclamation of Jesus Christ about God’s Love for Mankind. I shall do so through the guidance of the Holy Spirit by paraphrasing the Whole Verse or Passage by parts and give them their meaning and importance.
