Jesus' World


Meeting the Pharisees, Zealots, and others

Enter quantity


What was the difference between Pharisees and Sadducees? What did scribes and publicans do? Learning about the historical setting of Jesus' world makes our understanding of His teaching even deeper. Such learning begins simply with knowing what the terms mean.

Half of this visual illustrates a variety of words from the time of Christ: Zealots, Pharisees, Sadducees, Herodians, miracles, parables, scribes, publicans, synagogue, and rabbi. The other pieces contain simple definitions of those words. The word piece may be attached to the definition piece at the top to flip up and show the definition underneath. Or the pieces can remain separate for students to match word with definition.

Twenty pieces of varying sizes. Instructions/answers included.
