Roman Rule of Israel

  • By 31CE the Roman had control of Israel
  • Autonomy of Roman Rule - Subject to a military governor such a Pilate who was known as perfect
  • Pilate needed to interact with the indigenous people, and did so in Jerusalem through the Sanhedrin
  • Sanhedrin dealt with "Jewish Affairs" and had been responsible for for civil administration and Tax collection
  • Pilate (or perfect) had dealt with internal and external security controlling the Jewish people and deciding capital cases

This resulted in

  • Interference of Jewish life, taking away money which was not needed by the Romans and divisions led to insecurities
  • Led to a split power between Rome and the Sanhedrin (more division)
  • Although the Romans did not have freedom of practice, however religio-lectica made Judaism a legal religion
