    Throughout his complete works, Josephus identifies three main sects of Judaism that were present within his lifetime: the Pharisees, the Sadducees, and the Essenes. Throughout his different works he offers many descriptions of these different sects. He describes the Pharisees in the most detail, likely because he asserts that the Pharisees drew much support from the common man and that he himself was once a Pharisee (Antiquities 13.10.5). It is useful to help understand these three sects by…

    Martin Goodman comments vehemently on the first century CE sects of Judaism and focussing on important similarities as well as differences, this paired with Philo’s Apologia pro Iudaeis and Josephus’s Jewish War and Jewish Antiquities calls for some interesting, thought-provoking discussion. I especially find interest in his comments on the contradictions between the Sadducees in contrast to the Pharisees, it is easy to presume that the Sadducee and the Pharisee as an individual could not be any…

They are hard working men, so, to them, being sweaty is a good thing. When they travel to remote places, the…
