Who Where the 3 Groups spoken of in the bible?
Their main distinguishing characteristic was a belief in an Oral Law that YAHUAH gave to Moseh at Sinai along with the Torah. The Pharisees believed that YAHUAH also gave Moses the knowledge of what these laws meant and how they should be applied. This oral tradition was codified and written down roughly three centuries later in what is known as the Talmud.The Pharisees also maintained that an after-life existed and that YAHUAH punished the wicked and rewarded the righteous in the world to come. They also believed in a messiah who would herald an era of world peace. The pharises were also impart of acussing YASHUSHA of blaspheming, and confronting him for healing on the shabbot day.
The Sadducees were elitists who wanted to maintain the priestly caste, but they were also liberal in their willingness to incorporate Hellenism into their lives, something the Pharisees opposed. The Sadducees rejected the idea of the Oral Law and insisted on a literal interpretation of the Written Law; consequently, they did not believe in an after life, since it is not mentioned in the Torah. The main focus of Sadducee life was rituals associated with the Temple.The Sadducees disappeared around 70 A.D., after thed estruction of the Second Temple. None of the writings of the Sadducees has survived, so the little we know about them comes from their Pharisaic opponents.These two "parties" served in the Great Sanhedrin, a kind of Supreme Court made up of 71 members whose responsibility was to interpret civil and religious laws.
A third faction, the Essenes, emerged out of disgust with the other two. This sect believed the others had corrupted the city and the Temple. They moved out of Jerusalem and lived a monastic life in the desert, adopting strict dietary laws and a commitment to celibacy.
The Essenes are particularly interesting to scholars because they are believed to be an offshoot of the group that lived in Qumran, near the Dead Sea.
One man cannot die for another mans sin (YAHUSHA died for our sins)
So some are denying that fact that YAHUSHA died for our sins, and one of the arguments is that one man cannot die for another mans sin. If YAHUSHA died for our sins why did we still go into slavery.Well In On this topic I wanna give my explanation on the subject.
Debarim / Dutaronomy 24:16 Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.
Wayiqqra or Leviticus 24:17 eye for an eye Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death.
These are just some of the arguments foamed. But lets look at an example how We see a punishment being passed on to a future generation.
Solomon had taken many wives which YHUAH commanded the children of Yasharal not to intermarry with them, and that they would lead a stray there hearts after false mighty ones. But solomon took foreign wives onto him self, and came to build high places and altars for his wives to burn incense and slaughter on them leading his heart a stray.
1 Malakim / 1 Kings 11:11-13
And YAHUAH said to Shelomoh, “Because you have done this and have not guarded My covenant and My laws, which I have commanded you, I shall certainly tear the reign away from you and give it to your servant. “Only, I do not do it in your days, for the sake of your father Dawiḏ. Out of the hand of your son I shall tear it. “Only, I shall not tear away all the reign but give one tribe to your son for the sake of my servant Dawiḏ and for the sake of Yerushalayim which I have chosen.” So we see here that a punishment was do, but was passed on to a future generation.
My insight comes from Mattithyahu / Mathew 27:19-25 While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.” But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have YAHUSHA executed. “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” asked the governor. “Barabbas,” they answered.“What shall I do, then, with YAHUSHA who is called the Mashiach?” Pilate asked. They all answered, “Crucify him!”“ Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!” When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!” All the people answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!” So It is my option from here He still died for our sins, however the punishment was brought back on the peoples children. Future generations by word of our ancestors .
In genesis it was already foretold to Abraham from YAHUAH, Know for certain that thy seed will sourjourn in a land that is not there own and will be afflicted for 400 years. During slavery and into today we've died and continue to be afflicted. The point I wanna make is he did die for our sins, but we still became punished not only for his death by our ancestors but also disobeying YAHUAHS laws and commandments.
