The relationship of the earliest Christian churches to Judaism turned principally on two questions: 1 the messianic role of Jesus of Nazareth and 2 the permanent validity of the Mosaic Law for all. The Hebrew Scriptures presented history as the stage of a providential drama eventually ending in a triumph of God over all present sources of frustration e.

The Zealots were aggressive revolutionaries known for their violent opposition to Rome and its polytheisms. Other groups were the Herodians , supporters of the client kingdom of the Herods a dynasty that supported Rome and abhorrent to the Zealots , and the Essenes , a quasi-monastic dissident group, probably including the sect that preserved the Dead Sea Scrolls.
