To understand the evolution of
what is called Judaism one must understand the history of rabbinical teaching.
The first period of rabbinical teaching is termed "Zugot" - a plural of
two identical objects.
(Pesachim 109b-112a) contains an extensive discussion of dangers of zugot and
of performing various activities in pairs.
The discussants expressed
belief in a demonology and practices of sorcery from which protection was
needed by avoiding certain activities.
The period termed Zugot
began when the Jewish revolt, led by Judas Maccabaeus and Jonathan Maccabaeus,
against the Seleucid Empire succeeded.
The period termed Zugot lasted from the founding
of the Hasmonean Dynasty until the rise of the
Herodian Dynasty, a
vassal of the Roman Empire.
Herod the Great
bolstered the legitimacy of his reign by marrying a Hasmonean princess,
Mariamne daughter of Hyrcanus II, and assured himself the throne with the
murder of the last male Hasmonean heir.
With the rise of the independent
Judean state under Simon
Maccabeus of the Hasmoneans, the nature of Judaism changed from theocracy
based on the natural moral order
with priests intrepreting the Will of
God into a nomocracy with a
list of do's and dont's.
Simon Maccabeus of the Hasmoneans reigned
from 142 BC to 135 BC.
It is here that an irrevocably splintering of

Moshe Rabbenu as Mosiac Law,

a personal incarnation or, more often,

A nomocracy is a social cultural
system in which the ultimate and final authority (sovereignty) rests in a
system of law - as in the Mishnah.
The change from
theocracy to nomocracy reflected a radical transformation from the rule of the
the High Priest, to rule of the community through
the judicial and legislative discourse of
the Supreme Court.
The High Priest, the Kohen Gadol, went from being
the supreme legal and spiritual authority to a figurehead who ruled in the
Temple but was still subservient to the Supreme Court.

PhariseeismOrthodox Judaism adheres to a
relatively strict interpretation and application of the laws first canonized in
the Talmudic texts and as subsequently developed and applied by the later
authorities known as the Gaonim, Rishonim, and Acharonim.
Judaism is characterized by belief that the Torah and its laws are Divine, were
transmitted by Yahweh to Moshe
Rabbenu, are eternal, and are unalterable; belief that there is also an
oral law in Judaism, which contains the authoritative interpretation of the
written legal sections of the Torah, and is also Divine by virtue of having
been transmitted in some form by Yahweh to Moshe Rabbenu along with the Written
Law, as embodied in the Talmud,
Midrash, and innumerable related
texts, all intrinsically and inherently entwined with the written law of the
Torah; belief that Yahweh has made an
exclusive, unbreakable covenant with the Children of Israel to be governed by
the Torah; adherence to Halakha, or Jewish law, including acceptance of codes,
mainly the Shulchan Aruch, as authoritative practical guidance in application
of both the written and oral laws, as well as acceptance of halakha-following
Rabbis as authoritative interpreters and judges of Jewish law; belief in Jewish
Orthodox beliefs may be most found in their adherence to
the thirteen Jewish principles of faith as stated by the Rambam (Maimonides).
