Pharisees, Scribes, and Sadducees in Palestinian Society : A Sociological Approach (The Biblical Resource Series)
Anthony J. Saldarini
From The Publisher:
A noted scholar of early Judaism and Christian origins here provides the latest and best interpretation of the role of the Pharisees, scribes, and Sadducees in Palestinian Jewish society. Applying a sociological approach to the available biblical and literary sources, Saldarini accurately portrays these three most prominent groups of educated leaders in Jewish society and describes their relationship with other Jewish social movements from 200 B.C.E. to 100 C.E.
Widely praised in its original edition and now available with a significant foreword by James C. VanderKam, Pharisees, Scribes, and Sadducees in Palestinian Society will remain a standard point of reference for the continuing study of Judaism and Christian backgrounds.
