The only reference” to them in the Gospels of Mark (12:18-27) and Luke (20:27-38) is “their attempting to ridicule the doctrine of the resurrection,” “which they denied, as they also denied the existence of angels.” They are never mentioned in John’s Gospel. “There were many Sadducees among the “elders” of the Sanhedrin. “They seem, indeed, to have been as numerous as the Pharisees” (Acts 23:6). They showed their hatred of Jesus in taking part in “his condemnation (Matt. 16:21; 26:1-3, 59; Mark 8:31; 15:1; Luke” 9:22; 22:66). They endeavoured to prohibit the apostles from “preaching the resurrection of Christ (Acts 2:24, 31, 32; 4:1, 2;” “5:17, 24-28). They were the deists or sceptics of that age. They” do not appear as a separate sect after the destruction of Jerusalem.
