Judaism of the New Testament and Modern Judaism is based upon obedience to the commands of the rabbis and proudly proclaims it’s founding fathers to be the Pharisees.  Those who follow the Talmud, writings/commands of the rabbis, considered this Oral Law (Oral Torah) a higher value and weight than Written Torah (Holy Scripture). The Messiah warned his disciples to stay away from their teachings calling them “Sons of Satan” and that they make disciples of Hell because they do not teach and live the Word of God.
