Zealots actually repented and followed Jesus Christ

Zealots followed Jesus because He promised them something better than the Roman empire. They did not know that they would have to watch him suffer on the cross in order to enter into it. The Sadducees and Pharisees were economically and politically invested in the Roman Empire, so they did not care as much about the concerns of regular people. 
Even to this day, publicans and harlots and zealots don’t know that they are actually closer to the kingdom of God than all of the so-called religious gatekeepers. Not so they can continue in sin, but because they are more likely to actually repent.
