Sadducees were the Jews that kept the laws of the Torah but they did not believe in an afterlife. What’s the point? From the Sadducee perspective everyone will end up in the same place once they die there really is no distinction for the Jews. It probably would just be better to join the Pharisees or Essenes. What do you guys think about the Sadducees and them keeping the Torah laws but all of it in vain because they don’t believe in an afterlife?
Why would any Jew want to become a Sadducee?
