Pharisees vs Sadducees

The Pharisees and the Sadducees are two important groups of Jewish leaders in the New Testament. Most of the Pharisees and Sadducees not only rejected Jesus and his teachings, they rejected each other. The Pharisees were experts on the law and believed in a strict adherence to important interpretations of the law as a path to holiness. The Sadducees, who were a priestly class, focused on the Temple as the path to holiness and rejected both the resurrection of the dead and the afterlife.
