[…virtue signaling in the texts…]

Hypocrisy is castigated in the texts, and the presumably most egregious hypocrites are named and condemned:

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” (Matthew 23:1–39)

(“Ουαί υμίν γραμματείς και Φαρισαίοι υποκριταί”)

Whence the term pharisaical for hypocritical.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
