I do stuff
The primary sources we have about the Sadducees come down to us from the Talmud, the New Testament and Josephus. The problem with these sources are each of them are adversaries to the Sadducees so we only have a one sided view. As I wrote before, I find it odd the Sadducees left no writings behind. Take a look at the history of the Church. Many heretical writings have surfaced during the last hundred years. The Gospel of Judas and the Gospel of Matthew come to mind. Why would we think the Jews are any other religion would be different?Thanks for the links. As I mentioned, I did know there there was some violence involved but I honestly didn't know that it had gone to that extreme.
See, and old dog like me can learn new tricks-- but will I remember them tomorrow.
