The critically-acclaimed board game
consists of tough questions about the nuances of the English language.
The Sadducees were a priestly,
upper-class Jewish sect, founded in the second century BCE, that accepted only
the written Torah (not the Oral); they ceased to exist after A.D. 70. The name
derives from the Hebrew Zadok, the name of a
high priest in the time of David, whose name in turn derives from
Tsaddik , righteous.
The name Pharisee
denotes a Jewish sect that strictly interpretted and
observed both the written and oral Torah. The name derives from a Hebrew word
meaning "separated." Thus the Pharisees were the separated ones.
