 Form 2 CRE Lessons: Jesus begins His work in Galilee

Jesus faces opposition:
During Jesus ministry, he faced a lot of opposition from the Pharisees, the scribes and sadducees. The Pharisees believed strongly on the observance of the mosaic laws .They believed on the teachings of the prophets and other writings of the old testament. They believed and waited for the Messiah. They also believed that the messiah will lead a rebellion against Roman authority. On the other hand ,the Scribes ,were the writers and their work was to make copies of the Jewish Scriptures. Some of them rented schools where Jewish male youths learnt the Mosaic laws (Rabbinic Schools).The Sadducees were a very influential group .They
believed only in the first five books (laws) as having been inspired. They did not believe in the coming judgment and the Messiah. This group of people never accepted Jesus as the Messiah, this is because they had suspected a political Messiah instead Jesus came as a suffering Messiah.
