Narcissist Traits – Making It Look Good

.

Mark 12:38-44

38 In His teaching He was saying: “Beware of the scribes who like to walk around in long robes, and like respectful greetings in the market places, 39 and chief seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets, 40 who devour widows’ houses, and for appearance’s sake offer long prayers; these will receive greater condemnation.”

.

Matthew 6:2

“So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.   (Note:  Matthew 23:13 – “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites……  Matthew 23 – links the “hypocrite” label to the scribes and Pharisees)

.

As discussed in here and here, many of the Pharisees were narcissists.
