Sadducee: n. A member of a priestly, aristocratic Jewish sect founded in the second century B.C. that accepted only the written Mosaic law and that ceased to exist after the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70. (Rhyme… The Sadducee were very Sad You See, because they did not believe in resurrection).

Pharisees A member of an ancient Jewish sect that emphasized strict interpretation and observance of the Mosaic law in both its oral and written form. (Rhyme…. The Pharisees were so strict in the law that they weren’t Fair You See….)
