28 The Glad Tidings of the Messiah The Sadducees An examination of these movements reveals that the Sadducees were the most influential and highest sect in terms of social status, as well as the only movement that held a worldview completely contradictory to the message delivered by Jesus. Even though the available sources do not explicitly state so, it is highly probable that Jesus vehemently opposed this movement. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus warns the believers of the Sadducees' views: "Be careful," Jesus said to them.

The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child will put his hand into the viper's nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all My holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord, [just] as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:1-9) This anticipation of the Messiah grew stronger under Herod the Great's tyrannical regime. Movements expecting the Messiah sprang up everywhere on Jewish soil and were busy either preparing for his arrival or reminding people of his imminent arrival.

Some of the Jews believed that the Messiah would be a Savior-Prophet, not a supernatural being but a human just like the Prophets David, Solomon, or Moses. In other words, he would be a loyal servant of God and someone, as the Bible says, who "will delight in the fear of the Lord" (Isaiah 11:3) The Essenes foresaw the Messiah's miracles and anticipated his arrival. According to them, the Messiah would raise the fallen, heal the sick, free the captives, and awaken the dead. Since the Jews knew very well by looking at the available information that the Messiah's arrival was imminent, many groups and people were awaiting and preparing for this event, both in the desert and in the city.
