- This does sound a lot like some modern church leaders, who expect everything of people who are marginalised and lacking in money while doing nothing to help.

- That's extreme humility if you can't even have a title. Also, the prophecy in verse 12 is wonderful - God will make all things right and just and equal.

- ...This sounds so so much like modern church leaders who obsess over sexual sins and the sins of anger, nagging, or not forgiving people who have deeply hurt you/being jealous of the rich, but ignore huge issues of justice. I am biased, but.

- Jesus denouncing Pharisees in the context of them having far more social power than him and this kind of angry, hyperbolic debate being common in the era and not a sign he hated them makes this easier to read. I may have misremembered the contextual factors, though.

- I don't know if the prophecies of them murdering/being guilty count under that, but that's a response to murder, so.

- The chick-gathering verse and its compassion/love and feminine metaphors.
