If the Sadducees typically had an anti-messianic view while the Pharisees had a messianic view, is it possible to say the Sadducees in particular are responsible for the death of Jesus? In this episode, Professor Israel Knohl takes us through the night-trial of Jesus and explains who was there and who was not there and the effects of the group's underlying view of the Messiah.
