“Why were the Sadducees and the apostles unable to find a way to reconcile their rival opinions?”
Why were the people who believed Jesus to be a fake, and the people who believed that Jesus was the real God on earth, unable to find a way to come to good terms on their different opinions? Simple. They were both too stubborn. Personally, I believe the apostles to be the right ones here. I also believe that Jesus did indeed walk the earth, and that the Sadducees were to blind to see the truth. Part of why Jesus was sent to earth was to tell the people that some of the old laws weren’t relevant anymore. The Sadducees were furious that Jesus would change the old and ancient laws. The apostles tried to get the Sadducees to understand, but they were just to stubborn.
