What happens when a group has privilege and power? The Sadducees in the ancient world were a privileged and powerful Jewish group during the time of Jesus. Scot reveals the characteristics of the Sadducees and how Jesus' interaction with them challenge what one can and should do with power. Jesus' Kingdom vision challenged the Sadducees. Jesus' critique of their use of power should inform and challenge followers of Jesus today on how the Kingdom should take root.
