Right, up to a point. They wanted Messiah to free them from the Romans IMMEDIATELY.
The Pharisees focused on the Mosaic law found in the Torah. Their radical obedience to the Law, which often fell into legalism, created a distinction between them and the Romans. Ultimately, the Pharisees expected the Messiah to hold the Law in the same regard that they did, and through obedience to the Law they hoped for
a revolutionary change among Judaism that would overthrow the Roman empire nonviolently.
Not "immediately." "They hoped for" is not something in an instant.
It was the zealots (of which you fail to acknowledge in your view) who wanted " immediate "overthrow of Rome. Zealots wanted to break the burden of Rome just like the rest of the Jews, but their means of doing so were bloody and violent. Apocryphal stories of the Maccabean revolt during the intertestamental period show that the zealots hoped for the Messiah to lead militarily against Rome.
There's really no point
in discussing your knowledge of the Pharisees. Jesus knew their hearts and in Matt.23, He explains it all!
