Pharisees and Sadducees in the Temple in Jerusalem: How tolerant were Jews in the first century?

In the late Second Temple era, the Pharisees upheld the oral law and practiced the customs handed down by tradition, but the Sadducees held that Jews should only adhere to a strict literalist interpolation of the Law of Moses. Professor Martin Goodman explores the degree to which these two factions did or did not tolerate one another. ("The Isaac Meyers Memorial Lecture")
