Won't Let U B (Sad)ducee on Feb14
Mya Smith & Tina Truong <3
Reasons You Should Join Us Instead of the Pharisees
- First of all we're kinda important to the government aka we have the most power in the government.
- We DON'T have as many strict rules and regulations
- The Sadducee also got along with Gentiles, so no we won't shun you if you decide not to join us, unlike the Pharisees.
Versus the Line to Join the Pharisees...
What we Did:
- cared for temple practices and worship
- collaborated with Romans/Gentiles for power
- hated Romans/Gentiles, but put up with them because they allowed Israel freedom of religion
- We didn't believe in messiah; god would bless Israel as long as the priesthood and temple practices continued
How We're Different From the Other Religions:
- We we're a lot more into the government and were a lot more accepting towards other.
- Not as exclusive as the other religions
- We only believed in the Torah
- There was no afterlife
The Pharisees and Sadducees came to Jesus and tested him by asking him to show them a sign from heaven.
